The blame game signifies accusations exchanged among people who refuse to accept responsibility for some undesirable events or outcomes. These people shift fault and liability to another person or thing while they paint themselves as flawless. We need to examine some negative effects of the “blame game” and learn to take responsibility for our actions instead of passing the buck.





The following, among others, are some negative effects of the blame game:

‘Chasing shadows’: It makes us leave the main issue and continually look for excuses. For example, a slothful person will rather transfer blame to his boss, colleague, government, etc. instead of dealing with laziness (Proverbs 20:4).

Stagnation: It keeps us in one spot for a long time. This is counter-productive to human progress. Some people fold their arms to do nothing about their predicament because they blame and believe others are responsible for their conditions (Proverbs 22:13; Eccl.11:4).

‘Never wrong syndrome’: We get quick at clearing ourselves of any wrong while we see every other person as being at fault (1 John 1:8; Genesis 3:12).

Depression: It births unhappiness and despair which can degenerate to depression, ill-health, hopelessness, etc.

Mental blindness: Like a veil, it prevents one from seeing clearly as the supposed wrong of others are only seen (Matthew 7:3).

Hatred: It produces deep-rooted hatred as the “blame gamer” condemns or speaks derogatorily about the person being blamed. Hatred is a terrible sin (1 John 4:20).

Pride and Ignorance combine: Pride sets in when we over-rate ourselves. It combines with ignorance because we refuse to be sincere with ourselves (Philippians 2:3).

Ingratitude: “Blame gamers” are unappreciative as they believe their benefactor can do more (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

Bitterness: Blame gamers become offended and allow bitterness to take an evil root in them (Ephesians 4:31; Hebrews 12:15).

Destruction of relationships: It tears relationships through suspicion and a lack of trust (1 Samuel 18:8-9).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: The class should share their experience of the blame game.


Taking responsibility for one’s actions or inactions may not be easy but it is worth it in the long run. Hence, we must learn to sincerely acknowledge our wrong when we are at fault (Psalm 51:4a; 1 Kings 21:29). We must show a high level of personal accountability for our actions/inactions even in the face of failure (2 Samuel 12:13). Let us ask God to create a right spirit in us so as to be swift to acknowledge that there is a problem when a mistake is made or conflict arises (Psalm 51:10; 2 Samuel 24:17). Identify your role in a blunder and plan on how to avoid a future occurrence (James 1:13-14).

Students should share their experiences on what happened when they sincerely own up to a fault.

CONCLUSION: Stop trading blames, take responsibility for your actions/inactions, and be accountable.


Mention three negative effects of the blame game.

How can believers take responsibility for their actions?


Sunday: Colossians 3:17 (KJV)

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Monday: Acts 15:9 (KJV)

And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.

Tuesday: Zechariah 3:4 (KJV)

And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.

Wednesday: Hebrews 3:13 (KJV)

But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Thursday: Luke 6:41-42 (KJV)

41 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 42 Either how canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me pull out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to pull out the mote that is in thy brother’s eye.

Friday: Romans 12:10 (KJV)

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;

Saturday: 1 Peter 5:5 (KJV)

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

ASSIGNMENT: Mention five (5) people in the Bible that traded blame and support it with scriptural reference (2×5=10 marks).


O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

O how I love Thee well,

I am happy, it makes me glad

To rejoice at Thy birth.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

Thy friend friendship suits me well,

Both young and will sing Thy song,

We long for Sunday School.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

Christ was Thy first teacher,

The Holy Spirit, great teacher,

Does manifest in thee.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

This testimony is sure,

That God, the Father Almighty,

Poured His blessing on Thee

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,

Though the sun be so bright,

Or if the clouds be black with rain,

I’ll be in Sunday School.

O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day

I rejoice to see Thee,

Will thou pass over me today?

Without my being blest?
