Taking Responsibility = Love
People who try to blame others' for their own actions are really annoying. More and more lately it seems like people are always trying to pass the blame - especially when giving fake apologies. For example, I want to burst out laughing at the twisted way a person tries to apologize when they say something like I'm really sorry you got upset when I wrecked the car, lol. Or, something like, I'm sorry I hurt you . . . but you make me so mad. Always, the immature or self-centered person will pass the blame rather than take responsibility for screwing up.

Society seems to be raising a bunch of self-centered, prideful and arrogant jerks who would rather ask forgiveness rather than permission, who won't fully admit to doing anything needing forgiveness in the first place. It's no wonder that relationships are failing at a speed faster than light when neither person wants to admit their weakness and accept the blame they are responsible for. A mature person says "I'm sorry I hurt you." An immature person says "I'm sorry you're hurting." It is not a sign of weakness to show that you understand you made a mistake and take responsibility for your own part WITHOUT pointing out the other person's part in the situation. That is for them to accept blame for on their own. It is a sign of strength to say "I'm sorry, will you please forgive me?" and then don't add another word. I promise in the long run you will get much better results for showing love in this way. . . .
Daily Devotional from "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young
When I Give You no special guidance, stay where you are.  Concentrate on doing your everyday tasks in awareness of My Presence with you.  The Joy of My Presence will shine on you, as you do everything for Me.  Thus you invite Me into every aspect of your life.  Through collaborating with Me in all things, you allow My Life to merge with yours.  This is the secret not only of joyful living but also of victorious living.  I designed you to depend on Me moment by moment, recognizing that apart from Me you can do nothing.

Be thankful for quiet days, when nothing special seems to be happening.  Instead of being bored by the lack of action, use times of routine to seek My Face.  Although this is an invisible transaction, it speaks volumes in spiritual realms.  Moreover, you are richly blessed when you walk trustingly with Me through the routines of your day.

Colossians 3:23 23Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men

John 15:5  5"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Psalm 105:4  4 Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.
