Accountability Questions


Character Conversation Questions

These questions are to be asked of one another in a weekly meeting of accountability (Proverbs 27:17). They are to stimulate conversations of character and confession of sin in a safe environment that values honesty, vulnerability, confidentiality, and grace.

greatness of Jesus Christ with both your words and actions?

3. Have you lacked integrity in your financial dealings or coveted something that does not belong to you?

4. Have you been honoring, understanding and

generous in your important relationships this week?

5. Have you damaged another person by your

words, either behind their back or face to face?

6. Have you given in to an addictive behavior this

past week? Explain.

7. Have you continued to remain angry toward

another person?

8. Have secretly wished for another’s misfortune?

“Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray

for one another, so that you may be healed.”
