We All Need a Wayne in Our Lives

Commander Bill Gunter —  December 31, 2010

Every year people make resolutions that they will never keep. Every day, someone plans to do something they will never complete.  And why is that? Because they don’t have a Wayne in their life.

If you have read Wayne’s bio, then you know that he is an accountant. He goes to his clients and they have to give him an accounting of what they have done financially. If there is impropriety, or something out of the ordinary, then I’m sure Wayne would bring it to their attention and so I’m sure his clients are careful about their financial practices.

While we may not actually be looking for an accountant, we each need some one to keep us accountable to be sure our lives are God honoring. People fail to keep resolutions because they do not have some one to keep them accountable.

Several years ago, at an Awana closing program, I stated that I would work through the handbooks the children work through. Well the next fall came and I didn’t start working in the handbooks. I knew I needed some more accountability so I used the children in the Awana club, through incentives for them, to keep me accountable to work through the handbooks. That accountability worked!

So as we begin a new year, whether you are making new resolutions, or continuing to live daily for Jesus, find yourself a “Wayne,” someone to keep you accountable for keeping your resolution, teaching Biblical Truth and living daily for Jesus.

  1. Someone should make Wayne bobbleheads. We could call them “Lil’ Waynes”
