Two Distinct Voices

Most of my life I’ve been told how important accountability is. I agree, it’s important. Very important in fact.

I’ve always sought to have people in my life that can ask me the tough questions. However, the downside to accountability is that it’s set up on the premise that I’m going to mess up. It’s someone basically saying I know you’re going to mess up. I don’t know if it’s today, or tomorrow, or the next day, but I’m going to shoot questions at you until I catch you in the act.

I’m discovering that equally as important to my walk with God is people who are reminding me of who He created me to be. Instead of asking me at the end of a day if I’ve screwed up they’re the first one to cast vision for what God just might do through me today. Instead of reminding me of who I’m not they’re casting vision for who I’ve been called to be.

    Accountability without encouragement is not healthy. Great accountability comes with a huge dose of positive reinforcement and a praying friend who wants you to taste victory.

    Thanks for this post. It’s so easy to get caught up in the times we mess up that we forget about what God still has planned for us.

    great post! I love the positive side of accountability and how God has a destiny for all of us. I can lose sight of that when I have blown it.
