“We’ve Got to Be Accountable for Our Actions”

“We can hide behind our wrongs or we can acknowledge them out of love for our family and friends.” – #ToddCPittman

Yep, I Said It!

and so did . . . 2 Samuel 24:16-17 – (16) But as the angel was preparing to destroy Jerusalem, the Lord relented and said to the death angel, “Stop! That is enough!” At that moment the angel of the Lord was by the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. (17) When David saw the angel, he said to the Lord, “I am the one who has sinned and done wrong! But these people are as innocent as sheep—what have they done? Let your anger fall against me and my family.”

“This morning I read from 2 Samuel, and it was in Chapter 24:16-17 that reminds us of being accountable for our actions. Look we all have sinned and will probably sin again and David was no exception. But the question that comes to mind is are we going to own up to our sin or let others around us pay the price for our mishaps, missteps, and blatant mistruths and then sit back and wonder why family and friends show us nothing but mistrust? Let’s make today the day to be accountable. Let’s make today the day to ask for forgiveness. Let’s make today the day we own up to our wrongs and bear the punishment until God says enough! Oh, and believe me – true testimony – He will eventually say enough is enough. But first, we have to take enough ownership in the circumstances we create to realize that repentance might lead to discomfort and know that God does use evil agents and uncomfortable circumstances in us to accomplish His purpose. Bottom line, whether MAN or WOMAN, It’s time for us to man up!” – #ToddCPittman
