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.


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 are too full of you to forgive.

I cheat you of holiness…
because you refuse to admit when you are 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 convinced 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.
by Beth Moore
So good.
