personal and godly accountability





I never knew the importance of Personal and Godly accountability growing up. My mother always held me accountable for not cleaning my room or not finishing my homework. The basic typical teenage and young adult scenarios. Even Though she was training me to be a responsible and dependable woman it wasn’t a big deal to me, because i was a teenager. As I got older and realized that if you don’t have accountability it could make you or break you literally. After I was a little older and started dating, and becoming my own woman i started to notice that some people had little or no accountability. I was surprisingly shocked at the lack of accountability that individuals displayed with their actions and behavior. I started to learn and observe more and more the importance of accountability. Nevertheless I was nowhere near perfect even though my Mother instilled those traits in me, sometimes I still messed up and sometimes i messed up really bad. I had to live and learn through trial and error with always having the intention to be a better person for myself and others.

When you are a Christian everybody have high expectations of you and you are held accountable for your actions, attitudes and your choices. God holds you accountable and the way you live, act and carry yourself matters. When Jesus returns you will be held accountable for your actions and for whatever he has entrusted you with. God has entrusted each and every one of us with talents, spiritual gifts, skills, relationships and his Godly word, God wants and expects you to utilize your God given abilities no matter how big or small. Be accountable for what God has blessed and entrusted you with, honor God and honor yourself. We are created in his image so if he created you honor him and be the example, be the leader, mentor, speaker, teacher, singer, cook, minister or whatever Godly talents and gifts that he have blessed you with.

Sometimes in the ministry you are quickly judged with or without cause. Some lessons are learned and some lessons you never learn because no one has ever taught you, so therefore either you learn the hard way or you are judged and set apart because you are not doing it there way the christian way.
