Accountability? Blech!

First confession of the day: I hate New Year’s Revolutions!  I always make them and I always dread the year in light of them.  So for the past few years I haven’t made them.  I’ve just given myself things to focus on.  But let’s be honest, I’m just making excuses for myself.  Whether I make a resolution or not, there are areas  in my life that need to change.  My beef with resolutions is that they are too easy to break.  There is no accountability.  Most resolutions don’t deal with the root of most of my issues, but I can change that.

I’ve got to get some accountability for myself.  I need to position people in my life with whom I can track my progress.  Second confession of the day: I hate accountability.  Once you start being accountable you are intentionally responsible for what you’re doing.  Some days I don’t want to be responsible.  It’s easier just to hide and pretend I don’t need any help.  This isn’t working for me.  The trouble with someone holding you accountable is you start digging into a deeper level of relationship.  Who wants to do that?  I’m going to have to trust someone to help me and challenge me without taking it personal or attacking them.  Gees, this is going to be harder than I thought.

Maybe Pastor Man’s talk tonight will provide some direction.  I sure hope so.  You should join me and we can learn together.  Revolution Church happens on Saturday nights at 5p.  I’ll be there tonight.
