Pride: A Root Sin. Consider this reflection...

"My Name is Pride” poem by Beth Moore

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 you 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 convinced 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.
