Pride is a Cheater




~Beth Moore
Praying God's Word


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 your 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 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.
