This got me thinking...
I found seven occasions where the word 'pride' was used in the New Testament - and they were mostly positive.
Eight references to 'proud' were all bad.
Interesting. It would appear, from the New Testament, that to 'take pride' in something or someone is generally good - certainly it was good enough for the apostle Paul - whereas to be 'proud' is not good.
So I'll 'take pride' in my wonderful church, and the men and women I love, and my wife and children, and even my gifts without fear, safe from the humility police.
But I'll avoid getting proud!
