Bible Reading: Genesis 1:26-31
Memory verse: Psalm 115:16, “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD’s; but the earth He has given to the children of men.”
This is one of the subtle lies that the devil tells us, so we won’t take responsibility for the outcome of our lives - health, finances, relationships, etc. It is always easier and more comforting to blame someone else, remember, it started with Adam and Eve in Genesis 3. Look at Psalm 115:16 “The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; but the earth hath He given to the children of men.” Genesis 1:28 says, “God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.’”
We are responsible for our deeds, but God, through Jesus Christ, has made grace available to help us. Let’s accept God’s help, for indeed He has given us responsibility of our lives and the world we live in.
