My Name is Pride

My name is Pride.  I am a cheater.

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

O 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 the window.

I cheat you of genuine friendship. . .because nobody's going to love 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, and 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 it.
