Pride and a new site to visit

My Name is Pride, I am a cheater.
I cheat you on 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 holiness...
because you refuse to admit when you're wrong.

I cheat you of vision...
because you would rather look in the mirror than out the window.

I cheat you of genuine friendship...
because nobody is 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.
~Broadman & Holman
I found this poem on A Wise Woman Builds Her Home. This blessed wife writes many insightful and encouraging words on a variety of subjects. I just found this site today and am already encouraged and convicted by it. I hope you will be sure to visit her site soon!
In Christ,
