Blame It On The Weatherman

An interesting game called the Blame game

Scene: Garden of Eden, Adam & Eve disobeys God's command

God asked Adam, What have you done?
Adam answered, the woman you put me up with deceived me and I ate the forbidden fruit

God asked Eve, What have you done?
Eve answered, the serpent you put in this garden deceived me and I ate the forbidden fruit

God asked Serpent, What have you done?
Serpent answered, Lucifer whom you chased from Heaven deceived me and I gave the forbidden fruit to Eve

God asked Lucifer, What have you done?
Lucifer answered, I was angry with you that you made Man more important that me

God asked Himself, What have I done?
Jesus answered, Don't worry Dad, I will go and rectify, even if it means my life.

It is Finished, so lets stop blaming. :-)

How long has it taken for you to enter the Promised Land?

Have you wondered why it took 40 years for the Israelite's to reach the Promised land? As a young Christian, I never understood certain things from the bible and considered them as mythical.
40 years to travel 240 miles by foot? hmmm...isn't that a short distance that can be covered in few days or max a month given all the stop overs for rest.

Whose mistake was it
I thought God was taking them round and round. But if we re-read, it is the Israelites who refused to enter the promised land. They preferred slavery in Egypt than obeying God. I guess the Israelites had got used to the lives they were leading in Egypt than going to a new place(Canaan) which were filled with giants. I would say both places don't look good in terms of the adversaries they'd have to face. But in one God's hand is there. The land promised to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the land flowing with milk and honey sounds more inviting.

I guess, we are in some ways like frogs in the well, refusing to see the big picture because of being closed minded.
