Pride is never depicted in a positive way in the Bible. You can study it out. That means there is no such thing as "good pride" from a Biblical perspective. If there ever was a time when God might have expressed pride, it was when the Father spoke at the baptism of Jesus. However, the Father did not express pride in that moment. Instead He said, "this is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." Since God does not express pride, and since pride is always talked about as a negative thing in the Bible, perhaps we should reconsider ever taking pride ourselves. At its core pride is selfish and stirs up strife and contention. Pride is entirely flesh driven and does not originate in our spirits. Instead of being proud, consider being well pleased instead. Then you will reflect the character and nature of your Father in Heaven.

He who is of a proud heart stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the Lord will be prospered. — Proverbs 28:25 (NKJV)
