Romans 14:12 “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.”
Because we are responsible for our decisions and the outcomes so associated, we are, therefore, accountable for those decisions and outcomes.
There are those with the mindest that how they were raised, the generation they grew up in, and the rules they had to endure is somehow a free pass to bad decisions and the unwillingness to accept full responsibility for the outcomes of those choices, judgments, and determinations.
As a side note, parents tend to give their kids a free-pass, for this reason: “Well, you know that too many rules will drive the kid away and make them rebel.” HOGWASH! We, and we only, make the decision to rebel, disobey, and stray from the truth.
The day we stand before the Great Judge will be our time not to shine. At the Judgment Seat of Christ, we are all equally worthless, and there because of His MERCY AND GRACE.
We will be prostrate, and if we get the chance to speak, we won’t blame rules, parents, employers, pastors, government, or a generation. We will give an account of ourselves to God, period!
So, if you are generation G.I., Silent, Baby Boomer, X, Y, Z – don’t practice using that as a crutch at the Judgment, for you will be at the losing end of that excuse.
