Most of us are familiar with what the Bible says about pride/being proud. There's not a single one that I've seem that has anything positive about it. With that in mind, is it wrong (a sin?) to make such statements such as: "I'm proud of my/my spouse's/my children's accomplishments!" "I take pride in my work!" "I'm proud to be an American!" And the list goes on. What do any of you folks out there in BB Land think about this? Are there any specific Bible references that put pride in a good light?
