These are 3 of the 5 men that are in my accountability platoon. We meet weekly as a commitment to one another.

We talk about the good, the bad, the ugly, the difficult. There is no topic off limits. The important thing is we remind one another that we are not our own. That sin in our lives is not excusable but we are also free of condemnation.

We don’t waste the time with small talk about weather, sports scores or fertilizing our lawns.

We pray for one another’s marriages, sickness, anxieties, faith and families.

We don’t blame our spouses for our behavior. We don’t let the “single guy” (not in the picture) be left out because he isn’t married.

This is a follower’s journey we are on together and we are committed to being our brothers keeper.

These guys are a valuable and necessary part of my life as I follow Jesus.

I am thankful for them and rely upon them.
