Good morning.

The writer of Hebrews tells us: "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

(Hebrews 10:24-‬25)

Unbridled freedom may seem like a great blessing, but it can be a recipe for disaster. Giving others permission to speak into our life helps us avoid common pitfalls.

There are benefits to being accountable:

• Increased integrity. when we have to give an account to somebody, we’re more likely to be honest and transparent.

• Better stewardship. Accounting for the way we use money, time, or talent makes us careful not to waste those resources.

• Protection against excess. As children of God, we are free in Christ, but an accountability partner helps us stay balanced and guards us from taking liberties.

• Safeguard against unwise relationships. If we give an account of the places we go and the people we spend time with, we’ll be more likely to make wise choices.

• Healthy self-examination. Another person can often point out what we cannot see in ourselves.

Being in a Life Group helps us develop accountability as we encourage each other to greater things while honoring God.
