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 your 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
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. 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.
