PRIDE a Poem by Beth Moore

MY NAME IS PRIDE
By BETH MOORE
 
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.
