Peacocks are lovely birds but they do seem to have a bit of an attitude. Enough of one that they have earned the reputation, "proud as a peacock." As Sandwich Generation granny nannies and pappies, we may often have to help our grandkids work on having an attitude of gratitude and gentle humility, rather than following in a peacock's tracks. Here's a fun photo to help them, and us, learn the rest of 1 Corinthians 13:4…
it does not envy
it does not boast
it is not proud
1 Corinthians 13:4b
An encouraging Scripture for our grandkids and for all of us in the Sandwich Generation dealing with the wide variety of issues that can crop up through the year!

Love is so important. And it is a fruit of the Spirit. When we love, we care about others.
So glad I stumbled upon your blog through WFW.
Such a nice picture and scripture.
Oooo, that pride thing. So ugly! I want to be truly loving!
What an incredible word!! Loved this one. Thanks so much.
Have a blessed WFW today!
What a perfect reminder of “pride.” We say it all the time around here if someone becomes a bit too “puffed up….” “Pride comes before the fall, you’d better watch out.”
Most excellent! I love the verse with the peacock! It’s so important to get the Word of God into our hearts! Thanks for sharing. Blessings!
Great verse and picture match! Love it! Have a wonderful day!!
ha! that is so true! We have lots of peacock pictures from the zoo the other week, that is a great way to share that!!
Hi Debbie, Welcome! And thank you 🙂
Hi Denise, Thank you. Aren’t those feathers gorgeous! 🙂
Hi Lori, I, too, have regularly used the “Pride comes before…” I love your paraphrase. 🙂
Hi GlowinGirl – The nice thing about this series is that it’s teaching me right along with my grandkids 🙂
Hi Susan, Thank you so much 🙂
Hi Mary, Thank you. I so agree! Inspirational Bible verses tightly tucked away in our hearts are things things miracles are made of! 🙂
Hi Amydeanne, Thanks 🙂 How’s it going with the Word-Filled Wednesday changes? Working well on our end, that’s for sure. 🙂
Hi Bobbi, Thank you 🙂 Have a delightful Word-Filled Week. 🙂
I had to chuckle when I saw this picture, as we recently saw the peacocks that roam around our local zoo, spreading their beautiful feathers and calling out. They sure like to draw attention to themselves! I love this scripture, and it is a good reminder as to how God wants us to show loves to others. Thank you, Kaye!
My daughter has those around her house. Love the verses you added ~ Blessings ~
A wonderful reminder, especially for summer. Love it!
Peacocks do “strut their stuff.” We used to have a neighbor who had some, and they would wander over to our yard.
Yes, true love is not boastful or proud. It is humble, quiet, trusting, obedient, and caring. Thanks for sharing!
A good example of pride. I never thought of the saying proud as a peacock and that we should avoid displaying all our colors for others to see. Thank you for stopping by my place today, Kaye.
Now this was truly awesome…I love it!
