Unless you are filled with pride.
I came across this poem today that reveals the true state of my suffering.
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 a 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. 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'll never know.
