Why are we so afraid to speak about our own gifts? Not to the point of being arrogant, but to the point of understanding and knowing what we possess within our own well of greatness.
Matthew 10:27 Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops.
It is the parallel idea of humble vs. confidence. Christians, do not be alarmed, being confident in your talents is OK! If you have a God given ability, you do not have to hide it out of fear that you are not being humble. This, however, does not give you a voucher to be arrogant or boastful, but to acknowledge and take comfort in the ability that what you have is special and awe inspiring.
However God revealed your gift to you, whether it was in the dark, or a whisper, we encourage you SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!
