The Proud Peacock

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” 

Proverbs 16:18 New International Version 

 The saying goes “proud as a peacock”. Well, as pretty as this boy is, I can see why he would be proud. Even his backside isn’t too shabby. It kind of shows how he manages to get those feathers aloft.

The funny thing is that the dull little peahen he was trying to impress was just lying in the grass not even looking at him.

I’m sure that God had a good reason for creating the peacock this way. But God didn’t create us to show off for others. He wants us to be humble and quiet. Instead of trying to be the center of attention, we should quietly go about our day. If someone does notice us, let it be because of the good things we do and not because of the way we look or how we strut our stuff.
