Tough men are big on accountabilityBy Randell Tiongson on January 20th, 2010
5 men of diverse age and backgrounds were discussing many things in my living room hours ago. After downing dozens of home-made Tacos (as in literally); these men discussed things in a very bold manner — tough questions were asked and tough answers were given.
There were a couple of questions that was fired during the round table discussions. Not only were they candid, the discussions were raw and honest.
Here are the questions discussed:
1) Do you read your bible? When? How often?
2) Do you pray? In what manner? What do you pray for?
3) Do you engage in pornography?
4) How do you manage your finances? Do you tithe? Do you practice extreme generosity? Do you save? Are you becoming debt free? Do you invest? How do you spend your money?
5) Do you make disciples?
For some, these questions are simple — or are they? Real men will answer the questions in a straightforward manner. No beating around the bush and certainly no justifications. Tough men don’t need to massage their egos — they admit their short comings and they commit to improving themselves.
Here’s more — tough men know that they need other men too! They need to be held accountable with each other if they are to walk in righteousness as commanded by the Lord.
Are you accountable to anyone? Are you part of an accountability group? It’s about time you think and act on the concept of accountability — Tough Men are big on accountability!
Oh, tough men are also tough with their appetites!
Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:25, NIV
