Our Proud Moments

You see so many examples of pride going wrong. The tainted starlets. The greedy business men & women. The murders,molesters,and abusers. Liars, cheaters, thieves. All are examples of pride going wrong. The proud moments I wish to embrace and I hope you will too are things like: Watching your child say their first words. Watching your child read his or her first book. Sitting back watching the joy your family gets just having you around. Giving to others. Helping an elderly person with their heavy bags. Smiling. Saying hello. These are all examples of proud moments. God says this from 2nd Corinthians 7:4 I have spoken to you with great frankness; I take great pride in you. I am greatly encouraged; in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds. In other words God takes pride in us. Let's take the proud moments and cherish them.
