Toot Your Own Horn
There’s something so gracious about a person who is humble, isn’t there? It’s admirable to do great things and not want attention drawn to yourself for doing so. But…
I say – it’s okay to toot your own horn now and again. Everyone has not discovered what their talents and gifts are, but if you are one of the fortunate ones who have, then you should share them! Many of us don’t because we think showing them off oversteps the boundary of practicing humility. We tend to downplay our greatness because no one likes a show-off.
Tooting your horn does not include bragging or arrogant attitudes or “showing out” as our grannies would say. Strike a delicate balance between showing what you’ve got and having some humility about it. Toot your horn – it means that you acknowledge and celebrate the wonderful gifts that God has given you to share with others. And if someone’s not looking or tasting or touching or experiencing what you have to offer the world – sometimes you’ve gotta toot that horn to bring attention to it. Go ahead, make a joyful noise about YOU! (Toot, toot!)
