Some take pride in chariots, and some in horses, but our pride is in the name of the LORD our God. (Psalms 20:7
Father Henri Nouwen, "I love Jesus but want to hold on to my own friends even when they do not lead me closer to Jesus. I love Jesus but want to hold on to my own independence even when that independence brings me no real freedom. I love Jesus but do not want to lose the respect of my professional colleagues, even though I know that their respect does not make me grow spiritually. I love Jesus but do not want to give up my writing plans, travel plans, and speaking plans, even when these plans are often more to my glory than to the glory of God."
May we learn to be proud of being a Christian.
Dear God, with a sense of your humbleness help me to show my pride in being a follower of your son. In Jesus' name, Amen.
