Accountability

"Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates reproof is stupid."
-Proverbs 12:1

When I was younger, I remember my mom would go through my computer and my emails. I use to think it was an invasion of my privacy. I now know it was accountability. She wanted to teach me how to be accountable towards my own actions. I didn't understand it than but I appreciate that more than anything now!!
Walking with Christ, my husband, my brothers and sisters in Christ help keep me accountable to the Word of God. It is that much easier allowing them to take that role in my life since my mom started doing it at a young age for me.
When I am a mother, I want to teach my children about godly accountability.

"Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you"
-Hebrews 13:17
