According to author Luke Gilkerson writing online at Covenant Eyes, “Behavioral accountability is choosing to be honest with another person or group of people about our obvious habits or tendencies.”
There is nothing like seeing your weight broadcast live on national TV to make you accountable...trust me, I know. There was no way I was going to fail; my ego simply would not let that happen. Thinking back, I wonder about spiritual accountability...are we as careful about the covenants we make with and before God?
In the last month, the women of The Consilium have embarked upon a life commitment to honor God with the temples He granted us, and I asked them to begin by apologizing for what they might not have done well AND committing to what they could change.
Let’s all be accountable....do you honor your commitments? I asked that we commit to ONE CHANGE in creating new, healthier, long-term habits. I wonder...how’s that going? No condemnation...we all fail daily, but let’s talk accountability. Do we manage our spiritual lives the way we are careful about other areas?
