Since our existence on earth, we would make excuses for our mistakes, and would make every attempt to lay the blame on others. As we mature, we are more skillful in finding others as scapegoats. If people were blameless and pure, they don’t have to be afraid of false accusations.
Understandably, it’s hard for any person to be blameless and pure, but this is what the Bible teaches followers to strive for. Let’s ponder Philippians 2:14–16.
14Do everything without grumbling and arguing, 15so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God who are faultless in a crooked and perverted generation, among whom you shine like stars in the world. 16Hold firmly to the message of life. Then I can boast in the day of Christ that I didn’t run or labor for nothing. (Philippians 2:14–16 HCSB)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Dear God, how can I grow to become a blameless and pure person?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Ask God to give you the determination to become a blameless and pure person.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Tell a Christian your struggles and small achievements in becoming a blameless and pure person.
