A Tarrant, Alabama Police officer who became an Internet sensation after he decided not to arrest a grandmother he caught shoplifting eggs but to buy her some eggs instead, went a step further this week when he delivered two truckloads of food to her home to help her children.
"The last time I saw my house this full, I was 12-years-old and staying with my grandmother," 47-year-old mother and grandmother Helen Johnson told al.com Wednesday after the food was delivered to her home. "I've been crying all day."
Last Saturday, Officer William Stacy of the Tarrant Police Department was called to investigate the Johnson after she attempted to steal a dozen eggs at the Dollar General Store on Pinson Valley Parkway. After finding out that the desperate woman was simply trying to feed her children, however, Stacy bought a dozen eggs for the mother after getting her to promise not to shoplift again. more >>

We are all accountable for our actions in some way. Children are responsible for being disobedient to parents, as well as wives are for being faithful to their husbands. Why is it necessary to be accountable?
If we are not accountable for our actions, than it is very possible that we live lesser lives. We wouldn't try as hard in school because in the end it wouldn't matter. Having a strong relationship with the Lord does not shield us from needing accountability. We do not want to be deceived by Satan, but we must decide ourselves on the subject. We all need that one person we can tell anything too and it doesn't make them mad at us. We need to be able to speak the truth in love.
Below are Bible verses that give insight into the importance of accountability: more >>
Miner Todd Hoffman took a huge risk during the past season of "Gold Rush" on the Discovery Channel, risking his health, leaving family behind, and then losing his right-hand man while searching for gold.
"Gold Rush" returns tonight for the mid-season finale, and The Christian Post spoke with Hoffman, who is searching for redemption this season after nearly losing everything. Hoffman spoke about his faith and how God helped him through an incredibly difficult period.

It just took a toll on our families. The malaria kept our families from visiting. We were lonely, broke, and it was tough." more >>
