For me, it seems as if people want government or other people to solve their problems. It's easier to complain about others than to take responsibility and power upon ourselves to solve problems. When things go bad, it seems like people criticize God, but when things are going well, it's because of something they themselves figured out and did. I also see the analogy of the arrow as being rephrased as "what goes around comes around." The longer we find fault in others only makes us blind to the problems within ourselves.
