SUNDAY 23RD OF APRIL, 2023

LESSON THIRTY-FOUR (34)

TOPIC: RELATIONAL TRUST

SUNDAY SCHOOL HYMN
1. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
O how I love Thee well,
I am happy, it makes me glad
To rejoice at Thy birth.
2. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Thy friendship suits me well,
Both young and will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.
3. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.
4. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee
5. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds be black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.
6. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?
MEMORY VERSE: “The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.” Proverbs 31:11
BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 6:2-7
[2]Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables.
[3]Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
[4]But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
[5]And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:
[6]Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid their hands on them.
[7]And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.
LESSON INTRODUCTION: The five-letter word “trust” occurs in 139 verses in the Bible (KJV). While there are various root words translated ‘‘trust,’’ in this context, it means reliance on the integrity, strength or ability of a person or thing. Trust can be dependent or relational. Dependent trust is between man and God in which an individual completely trusts God while relational trust deals with human relationships and signifies the trust one reposes in another person. We shall focus on the attributes of a trustworthy person and how to be one.
OUTLINES
1. ATTRIBUTES OF A TRUSTWORTHY PERSON
2. BEING TRUSTWORTHY
1. ATTRIBUTES OF A TRUSTWORTHY PERSON
Trustworthy people are:
1. Tenacious: Trustworthy people are stubbornly unyielding to untruthfulness. Dan.1:8
2. Resolute: This means they are unwavering. Ruth 1:16
3. Unbendable: They are always determined to do the right thing. Est.3:2
4. Steady: They are straightforward. 2 Chron.24:11-12
5.Tested: They have proved their trustworthiness through thick and thin. 1 Sam.12:3
6. Accountable: They are always answerable for whatever task they engage in. Neh.13:13
7. Wholistic: They can be wholly trusted with time, money, the opposite sex, work, etc.
8. Reliable: They have your back and do not betray a trust or leak a secret for any reason.
Prov.14:23
9. Weighty: Trust is weighty but not burdensome as a result; the carrier is conscious of carrying something important and does not misbehave. Gen.39:9
10. Solid: They are always firm. Job 17:9
2. BEING TRUSTWORTHY
Being trustworthy is a deliberate and purposeful resolve an individual makes (Dan.5:17). Trust is earned (Prov.31:12): trust is not entrusted to anyone; it is consciously earned by an individual. There is a price tag of sacrifices to be paid by anyone who chooses to be trustworthy (Gen.39:10). We need to ask God for help (Rom.7:22-25) as we take time to study and obey His word because trust is the bedrock of a lasting relationship.
Some of the rewards of being trustworthy are peace of mind, boldness, a crown of honour and an asset while the consequences of distrust include shame, dishonour and loss of opportunities.
CONCLUSION: Trust is significant and essential to any relationship we may build because it is this trust in one another that forms the foundation of a strong relationship.
QUESTIONS:
* Mention four (4) attributes of a trustworthy person.
* How can one be trustworthy?
