Food for Thought: My Name is Pride

Hello to you all!

This was forwarded from my Mary Kay Director to her unit (of which I am still a part). Please take the time to read and reflect. You’re welcome to send me your comments!

Have a blessed day in the Lord! Love you all so very much!


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 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 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 am a cheater.
You like me because you think I’m always looking out for you.
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.
