Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Colossians 3:16
We all have blind spots. These blind spots are areas of ourselves that are hidden from our view. Sometimes, we get stuck in patterns of behavior and thinking. These patterns become so routine that we don’t even recognize when we’re in them. This is true for all of us. Christ-centered recovery affords us the great gift of people who hold us accountable. They do this by holding mirrors up so that we might see the reflections of our blind spots.

In recovery, we surround ourselves with a network of people who have our permission to hold us accountable. These are called sponsors and accountability partners. Our sponsors and accountability partners are specially chosen by us to help us see when our attitudes and behaviors are unhealthy, or when we are stuck in those undesirable patterns. They provide a means of self-examination that none of us have on our own.

Accountability is about love and trust. Do we love others enough to hold them accountable? Do we trust others enough to hold us accountable? Many times being held accountable can sting. When we are able to get past the sting of truth, real growth and wisdom take root in us. The responsibility each of us has to grow and mature one another is huge. The consequences of living outside of God’s design, without being held accountable, are even greater. We allow others we trust and love to reflect to us what we cannot see in ourselves, always with love and the intention of helping each other grow and mature as followers of Christ.
