I remember that I was running d0~ some steps in front of my home when I fell and bruised m~lf in several places. [ recaU thinking. "Here I am goL, g to church, so why would God let me fall down and hurt myself?." I was blaming Cod for my clumsiness And although blaming Cod when things go wrong may seem absurd, it's not too surprising in a day and age when we may fail to accept respomibili~' for our 0~ actions. often blaming others for our short- comings instead. And, when a disastrous situation comes along that can't be . blamed on some individual, we can alwa~ blame God. However, a more benefi- cial approach is knowing that God alwa~ loves us. and even when things don't go as we believe they should, realizing that perhaps He is Ding to teach us a lesson. I only fell down those steps once, and I am now aware that when d~ending stairs I should go one step at a time and without running. Throughout our lives, we are subject to many learning experiences, and God's gentleness in dealing with us should always he appreciated.
