Hi ,My Name Is Pride

My Name is pride. I'm a cheater
I cheat you out of your God-given destiny...
because you demand your own way.
I cheat you out 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 me 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 out 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'm 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.
