“The Devil made me to it.” Those words became a national catch phrase in the 1970s when comedian Flip Wilson coined them. But listen to this one. A Kentucky man, accused of strangling his wife claimed that excessive caffeine from sodas, energy drinks and diet pills left him so mentally unstable that he couldn’t have knowingly killed her. He was convicted. Excuse making has been around for a long time. Adam, our first father, confronted about his disobedience, said to God, “…the woman whom you gave me…” John warned, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves…” Thankfully, he also wrote, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins…” So, let’s stop blaming the Devil or someone else. Let’s honestly admit our wrong-doing , accept God’s mercy and invite Christ into our lives.
