Pride~is it always wrong?   Does God have pride?  If so, and pride is wrong and we are judged and punished for pride (the whole 'goes before destruction' thing), then why should we be in trouble for having pride when it is okay for God to have pride?  Definitions.  It is all about context and definitions.  Yes.  God has pride, but it is not the arrogant, narcissistic, me-first, self-serving attitude we have come to associate with the word.  That kind will lead to destruction!  It is a different emotion, a different attitude.  It is the joy and honoring with hope and a sense of wonder at the accomplishments and good things done by and for others.  Pride.  Listen as Deacon Joshua sorts out and rightly defines the word and then puts in in context for us to also have a Godly sense of wonder and worth when we come to understand God's pride in us.  (Spoiler alert: We cannot determine our worth for without Him we are worthless, but He set the price tag on us when He bought us with His Son, and therefore we are made priceless.)
