We have an interesting list of three things that could hinder our receiving of answers to from God, the second of these three is what we ponder on further today.
It is easy to accord blame to others for everything that occurs in our lives. We can definitely find a person, place or establishment to which we can point fingers and acknowledge as the cause of many things. The default statement that is tweaked in many forms follows the logic of ‘If this had not done that, or happened, then this would not have resulted’

In pointing fingers at everyone else, our attention is swayed from addressing core issues that go beyond the things at which our fingers point.
We need a level of introspection so we can execute the little personal changes we require to shape those outcomes which we desire.
