Sour grapes! 

Posted by Pastor Ron Tuesday, April 19, 2011 6:00:00 AM

There is an old proverb that goes like this:

 'The fathers have eaten sour grapes and the children's teeth are set on edge.'

It parallels the notion that 'It's my parents fault... blame them for the way I am.'  Certainly our parents have a profound effect on who we are and how we turn out ~ yet that isn't a valid excuse for anything.

Each person stands before God on their own and reaps what they themselves have sown.

Do you want to change who and what you are? Do you think you can change your genetics and/or your ingrained character and become a different person?

Impossible!         Or is it?

God has trashed that old proverb and in its place made a new agreement. Look for it promised here and brought into a living reality here.
