I watched the baby I was babysitting take her very first steps. What a proud moment! Her steps were not perfect, she would fall every time she lost her balance. We would help her get up to try again – this sometimes took patience.
This made me think of how proud God must be of us! When we start using our gifts He’s given us, when we achieve or learn something new etc. Even when we fall down, He is the one that lifts us up. Even though we might feel disappointed, God is smiling because we’re growing up.
