Title/Theme: Own It, pt. 1: “The Blame Game”
Key Idea: One of the most important lessons of life may have been the first we were ever taught: “Clean up your mess!” This truth takes a lifetime to learn and apply. The temptation to pass the blame and avoid responsibility is always with us (it has been ever since the first humans walked the earth). When we take our lives and our God seriously, we must ‘Own It.’
