My Life with God

No Accountability

8de42990496baa9a481a9f2828a10f83In all his scheming, the wicked arrogantly thinks: “There is no accountability,
since God does not exist.” (Psalm 10:4b)

No accountability. It’s what a lot of people think, and I wouldn’t categorize all those people as “wicked.” Maybe we all agree to some semblance of accountability, but it’s often accountability we determine as allowable. People are often willing to be accountable to what or whom they agree with, what’s acceptable and comfortable enough for us to handle.

But if our basis premise is wrong, what good is the accountability? If we hold ourselves accountable to the wrong things, is it actually accountability?

His ways are always secure. (Psalm 10:5a)
