A peacock is a symbol of pride. But the peacock is trying to attract a peahen. We have no excuse for pride. Pride is exalting ourselves above others, above reality, and is an affront to God. God will bring down the proud and lift up those who humble themselves before Him. Let us learn from the story of Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4. God had to humble him, but in grace restored him. Let us humble ourselves before God and receive His grace.  “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (1 Peter 5:5 NIV)
