Thankful Thursday ~ Accountability

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. ~ 1 Cor. 10:31

Hubby & I like to watch reality shows. On our list is “So You Think You Can Dance.” If “Dancing With the Stars” was on at the moment, we’d be tuning in to that one, too. We like dance shows. We’re geeks. Once we finish our graduate programs, we’re going to sign up for those dance lessons that we had promised ourselves we’d do when we had completed our undergraduate studies … ah-hem … 11 years ago.

So why do we like the dance shows? We enjoy watching the dancers present their routines. We’ve become quite good at predicting what the judges will say, especially when it doesn’t appear that the dancing pair had put in much practice.

One of the dancers on SYTYCD is incredibly gifted. He is a master of his craft. And he knows it. The judges have called him on the carpet week after week for being “arrogant” (except last night; they had nothing but high praise for him). Has he been arrogant, or is he dancing for the glory of God? That’s for him and the Lord to determine, not me.

What I can do is look at what I do, how I do it, and why. My assistant & I have talked on occasion about whether our thoughts and/or actions glorify God. Am I seeking attention for myself, or am allowing myself to be a vessel to be used in His hands?

I am thankful for …

~ My accountability question: Am I doing this (whatever “this” happens to be at the time) for my glory or for the Lord’s?

~ An assistant that is a fellow sister in Christ that I can share prayer concerns and praises with.

~ My hubby. He doesn’t hesitate to let me know when I’m being prideful and making the circumstance into an “all about me” fest.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you’ve enjoyed your stay. If you would like to read more Thankful Thursday posts, please click here.

  1. The dance shows are fun to watch. And I praise God for accountability also.

    Have a great day.

  2. Isn’t it so great having a special group of people who are close to you and not afraid to ask you the hard questions?? I like the dance shows too!!! Have a blessed day!

  3. “Am I seeking attention for myself, or am allowing myself to be a vessel to be used in His hands?” What an awesome question! I really try to focus on this as well but I could never have worded it so succinctly.

  4. My hubby and I finally – aftr many years – are taking dance lessons now. We’re having so much fun! It’s good to have someone to hold us accountable. Keeps us on track with glorifying God in all things. Blessings on your day.
