How To Toot Your Horn!

Scripture Reading

“God has shown you his grace in many different ways. So be good servants and use whatever gift he has given you in a way that will best serve each other.”

1 Peter 4:10 (ERV)

Introductory Remarks: 

Endowed with gifts from God, we can use our gifts in upward or downward ways. 

When we use our gifts in upward ways, we ‘toot our horn’ and affirm our gift. However, when we use our gifts in downward ways, we ‘toot our horn’ and deny or limit our gift. 

Major Points of the Lesson:

  1. Gifts must be uncovered.
  2. Gifts must be understood.
  3. Gifts must be activated.
  4. Gifts must be used wisely. 

Quote: “Toot your horn as an expression of God’s goodness and in fulfillment of your spiritual purpose.”
