Pride….

PRIDE

My name is Pride. I am a cheater.

i cheat you out of your God-given destiny….

because you demand your own way.

i cheat you out of contentment…..

because you “deserve better than this.”

i cheat you out of knowledge……because you already know it all.

i cheat you out of healing…..because you’re too full of me to forgive.

i cheat you out of holiness…..

because you refuse to admit when you are wrong.

i cheat you out of vision…..

because you’d rather look in the mirror than out the window.

i cheat you out of genuine friendship…..

because no one is going to know the real you.

i cheat you out of love…..

because romance demands sacrifice.

i cheat you out of greatness in heaven…….

because you refuse to wash each-others feet on earth.

i cheat you out of God’s glory……

because i convince you to seek your own.

my name is pride. i am a cheater.

you like me because you think i am always looking out for you.

not true.

i’m looking to make a fool of you.

God has so much for you, i admit, but don’t worry…..

if you stick with me you will NEVER know.
