Christian Devotional – October 21, 2017

What do we take pride in? In Proverbs 19:1-11 we see several things we should be taking pride and pleasure in. We see several areas where we can be easily tripped up such as spreading lies or taking credit for things that are not ours. Then, verse 11 makes an interesting statement. It is our glory to overlook a transgression. When other people sin against us, we are to take pride in our ability to forgive. We should have the best, most awesome, most complete forgiveness anyone has ever seen. That is what we can take pride and pleasure in. We are very much like Christ when we are forgiving others. As we strive to become more like Him, are we forgiving others as He forgives?
