Day 29: How to Find a Good Accountability Partner
It’s Day 29 of the challenge, and today we're talking about a simple no-nonsense approach to starting and maintaining an accountability friendship.
Randy Alcorn, author of The Purity Principle, levels the playing field when he writes:
I need accountability, you need it, your pastor needs it, your spouse needs it, and your kids need it. Everyone does. When I'm pursuing secret sin, the last thing I want to do is be with serious Christians. The time I most need accountability is the time I'll most likely withdraw from it. (The Purity Principle, p.87)
Admitting you need accountability doesn't mean you're extraordinarily screwed up. It means you're a sinful human being like all of us.
But where do you start? Who do you ask? What do you say? How do you bring it up? That's what this next video and article is all about.
