Pride

Tuesday, July 27, 2010



My name is Pride. I am a cheater.

I cheat you of your God-given destiny...
because you demand your own way.

I cheat you of contentment...
because you "deserve better than this."

I cheat you of knowledge...
because you already know it all.

I cheat you of healing...
because you're too full of me to forgive.

I cheat you of holiness...
because you refuse to admit when you're wrong.

I cheat you of vision...
because you'd rather look in the mirror than out a window.

I cheat you of genuine friendship...
because nobody's going to know the real you.

I cheat you of love...
because real romance demands sacrifice.

I cheat you of greatness in heaven...
because you refuse to wash another's feet on earth.

I cheat you 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'm always looking out for you.

UNTRUE.

God has so much for you, I admit.
But don't worry...

If you stick with me,
you'll never know.
