Alright, we all have done it. The boss shows up to work and questions why you did a certain thing. Your first response is, "well, because so-and-so did this or that!" You are at school and your teacher questions why your homework isn't turned in... well, the dog ate it of course. Or worse yet, your husband questions you about a text you received on your phone from another guy and you're scrambling for an excuse.
One of the things I have noticed being around and discussing life issues with teens and young adults is the increase of the phrase, "It's not my fault."
What if I decided today was the day I started taking responsibility for my actions? What if today I decided to delight in God first and seek Him for all that I am so I don't have to be defensive and make excuses? What if I was faithful to do the right thing so I never had to cover my tracks.
