Have you ever woken your kids up by turning on the light in their room?
It’s kinda funny isn’t it?!
They immediately make a face and pull the covers over their head moaning, “MOM, turn the light offfff!!”
That’s what I thought of yesterday at church when the Pastor spoke on accountability. He said being in an accountable relationship means being honest, vulnerable, available and teachable.
It caused me to reflect. The times I’ve been most vulnerable and honest are also the times I have been most wounded by those I called my friends. As I look back at those times, that “rejection” has caused me to temper how vulnerable and honest I am.
