We tend to hate the idea of accountability. I think this is because we imagine it to be about somebody telling us what we can’t do. The reality is that good accountability is positive. It enables those who love you to help you progress to where you really want to go but likely may not get to without a helping hand and encouraging words.
God gave us three gifts to help us accomplish our mission: the Word of God, the Spirit of God and the People of God. Sometimes, we really need all three gifts working together.
