Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?

OPENING PRAYER: Father, teach me to trust and be trusted in Jesus name.

MEMORY VERSE: “The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain”. Proverbs 31:11(NKJV).

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.

INTRODUCTION: The five-letter “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 with human relationships and signifies the trust one reposes in another person. We shall focus on the attribute of a trustworthy person and how to be one.

LESSON OUTLINES:
1. ATTRIBUTES OF A TRUSTWORTHY PERSON

1. ATTRIBUTES OF A TRUSTWORTHY PERSON
Teacher should ask students to give their ideas of a trustworthy person and later guide the class with the following point.
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 (Esth. 3:2).

4. Steady: They are straightforward (2Chr. 24:11-12).

5. Tested: They have proved their trustworthiness through thick and thin (1Sam. 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).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: How many of these attribute do you posses?

2. BEING TRUSTWORTHY
A. Being trustworthy is an intentional, planned, and decisive resolve an individual makes (Dan. 5:17). Trust is consciously earned by an individual (Prov. 31:12); it is not entrusted to anyone.

B. There is a price tag of sacrifices to be paid by anyone who chooses to be trustworthy (Gen. 39:10).

C. We need to ask God for help as we take time to study and obey His words because trust is the bedrock of a lasting relationship.

D. Some of the rewards of being trustworthy are peace of mind, boldness, a crown if honour, and an asset while the consequences of distrust include: shame, dishonour, and loss of opportunities.

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Have you been embarrassed because you were not trustworthy?

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.

CLOSING PRAYER: Heavenly Father, wherever I associate myself let me be found trustworthy people around me in Jesus name.

ASSIGNMENT: List five areas of your life where you need to work on to be more trustworthy (2×5=10Marks).
