Taking the Blame

Her Majesty, the Queen of England, was taking a foreign dignitary for a ride in an open, horse-drawn carriage, when
one of the horses passed wind. This greatly embarrassed the Queen, so she apologised profusely.
“That?s all right Ma?am,” replied the dignitary. “For a moment I thought it was one of the horses.”
Now, we might do a little chortle at the thought of the Queen taking the blame for what one of her horses had done, as
if she is above any human indiscretion, but have you ever willingly taken the blame for a wrong action?
In my opinion, it is not a natural thing to do, unless you love the culprit very much, and do not wish them to
experience the repercussions of their actions.
Sometimes parents do this for their children. It frequently has questionable results, for it is often better that they learn the lesson of, ?cause and effect.?
How fortunate for us that our Heavenly Father loves us so much, that He was not willing for us to take the eternal
consequences of our sin.
He did not want us to be forever separated from Him, and so He sent his Son Jesus, to die in our place. He took our
blame, and we are free, if we can accept that it was for us.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have
eternal life.” John 3:16
