How to Handle Adults Who Take No Responsibility for Their Actions

“You reap whatever you sow.” (Gal. 6:7) We have all heard about the law of reaping what you sow. It is much like the law of cause and effect. For instance, if you smoke, you most likely will suffer the harsh side effects such as cancer,…

We all know the consequences of our actions, but what happens when someone never learns to accept them?

Well, they never learn. They keep repeating the same mistakes over and over, without ever figuring out how to avoid negative consequences in the first place.

How does this happen? The most common explanation is that someone else is interfering.

It’s a frequent occurrence that someone can interrupt the law of cause and effect on someone else’s life. An example of this could be a mother constantly stepping in and saving their adult son or daughter from a difficult situation, such as continually paying off their bills.

The mother is shielding their adult child from the harsh reality of reckless actions. The adult child is being encouraged to not learn their lesson and is very likely to do it all over again. In fact, there is no reason not to.
