Friends are the Best Source for Accountability

Alaska 2011 Resized 475_opt_opt-1

Friendship is best when it includes accountability. I will call one of my friends in a couple of days and ask him about his faithfulness to his wife, what he has been perusing on the internet and even if he is lying to me. You might think that is too much. He doesn’t………………… and neither does his wife.

·          Progress through addictions is nearly impossible without accountability

·          True friends are the best accountability partners.

·          Friends can speak the hard truths into each other’s lives without that friendship being torn apart.
