The same thought immediately jumped into my mind. Play the blame game or be honest, 'fess up and change, correct the problem, do whatever it takes to make it right.
2 Chronicles 7:14 is another verse that jumps to mind, among many others...We own up to what we have done wrong and turn around (repent) and go back to God's ways.
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Thanks for the vote of confidence.
