The End of Blaming

In tomorrow’s reading from the Hebrew Scripture, Isaiah 58:1-12, there is a fragment of verse 9 that always gets my attention. The people are invited to give up “the pointing of the finger.” This is in amongst a variety of other behaviors that stand in the way of real righteousness and justice.

I don’t think this is asking us to swear off accountability or transparency, just blaming. Blaming has been part of the package since Adam and Eve, and it has not served humanity well. I am musing about blaming this morning.
