he MADE us and is PROUD of us
What’s the best thing you’ver ever made? Maybe on Minecraft, or in real life? Did you want to show it off to other people? Were you proud of your creation?
So is God.
Psalm 8:5 says:
You have made people a little lower than the angels, and crowned them with glory and honour.
God MADE us and then was so PROUD of what he’d made, he honoured us. He made us just a little lower than the angels! That’s amazing!
Can you think of a time when someone was proud of you? Maybe a parent or a teacher, when you did something really good. It’s a great feeling, knowing that someone is proud of you. And it’s awful when you know you’ve let someone down.
God is proud of you. He’s proud that he made you.
Doesn’t that make you feel like you want to make him even prouder? Show him how great it was that he made you. Be the best that you can be.
Today, think about one thing in you’re life you’re ashamed of. Something you’ve done, or something you always do. Something you know you don’t really try at, or something you can’t be bothered with. Do you think that makes God proud or ashamed of you?
