Does the idea of accountability scare the daylights out of you?
Are you craving accountability, but not sure how to cultivate it?
Do you struggle to get real with others, afraid that they may not be able to handle you?
Maybe you feel like it’s not fair to “put that” on someone else.
We all come from different perspectives when it comes to sharing our personal struggles, especially with sin. But the Scriptures are clear that we are supposed to confess our sins one to another so that we may be healed. So what exactly does confession look like? Who are we supposed to trust with our struggle? How are we supposed to respond?
In this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I’m joined by Kalie Kelch as we unpack the beauty of biblically-steeped accountability relationships. We consider every perspective, from how to go about sharing and what we can do to respond well. We also consider the biblical mandate along with promises for being in real, impactful relationships with other believers.
We chat about what it looks like in business, ministry, and our personal lives, especially in friendship and in parenting. But that’s not all! We consider the reality of our sin, the importance of confessing it, and wrestling through the call to pray for each other and our sins. And we share our struggle when those we love and have prayed for haven’t been healed on earth.
