Accountability?

There is a buzz word in many circles that when you actually think about the concept has little to do with anything. Accountability is the word. I’ve heard overweight people say they need accountability to lose weight. I’ve heard others who battle with something say they need accountability or they won’t make it. If that is the case, guess what, they aren’t going to make it! Nothing outside of you can change the inside of you, except God. Unless from the core of who you are change is made, no person asking you a couple questions is going to fix what is broken inside of you.
 
When a person really decides to make a life change, nothing outside of them will change that one way or the other. When a person has not decided to make a life change from within, nothing outside will change that one way or another.
 
People ask, why don’t you do something? That question is asked when someone you love is involved in some destructive behavior. I ask, what do you want me to do? You and I are powerless to change someone else’s behavior, just as they are powerless to change us.
 
Let’s not hide behind an idea that is powerless. If you really want change then go after it with all you have and forget the idea you need someone else to do it for you.

About Scott Ranck

Enjoying life with my wife Gayle and our Yorkie, Zoe boy. I've come to believe life begins when through brokenness I can embrace it fully and openly. I've learned the human drama is an adventure and all of us are made of the same stuff. The Lord is the only being who knows me fully and he has an individual educational plan of life long learning for me and I'm enrolled. This blog is all about what I'm learning.
