Friends don’t let friends get flabby

This morning at the gym, I noticed a sign that I had seen before (maybe even laughed at), but today it struck me a little differently.

Gold’s Gym rolled out new marketing over the past few months and part of it sought to connect with the average dude and not just the meathead who loves to do heavy bench press everyday. And I think I’ll do a series soon on the similarities between gym rats and church mice. But I digress.
There are several components that I think are crucial for spiritual health. This sign re-enforced one of them in my mind.  Accountability.
We are destined to fail without accountability. When we deny ourselves the basic need of someone to check in on us, pray for us, and hold us to our goals and calling, we are all but guaranteed failure.
Who keeps you from getting spiritually flabby?
