Iron sharpeneth iron;
so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
Two weeks ago, the forum on discipline brought comments about the benefits of accountability.
Accountability is a great help in the struggle with discipline.
My greatest accountability partner is my hubby.
He asks about my Bible memory,
encourages me to get back on track,
asks me about the snacks I have eaten throughout the day,
encourages me to deal with problems rather than burying them.
As a child, I also had a Bible memory accountability partner.
Oh, how I wanted to run each Sunday when I saw the church member who would listen to my verses
(or my pitiful excuses).
But it was good for me.
Unfortunately, I have found that those outside of my home
are often weaker partners.
Is it a fear of hurting someone's feelings?
Is it a fear of being held equally accountable?
What are your thoughts on accountability partners?
Do you have a partner or partners?
Do you fear them?
What are you held accountable for?
