Ain’t I Swell!


Pride

 

Proverbs 16:18
New Living Translation (NLT)

18 Pride goes before destruction,
and haughtiness before a fall.


Blinded By Pride

I really paid an awful lot,
My car is off the chart,
Just look at all the stuff it has,
It makes me stand apart,

Oh! And take a careful look
At the house that I just bought,
It has the very best there is,
I wrote the check without a thought,

Just look here in the mirror,
I wear my hair in a special way,
It makes me look like a movie star,
With they’re swagger and their sway,

And my clothes are all designer,
These are thousand dollar jeans,
You might think that quite extravagant
But after all, I have the means,

Oh no! I wasn’t flaunting!
I’m just sharing my good news,
Perhaps you’re just getting jealous
And it’s giving you the blues.

Father,

We bathe ourselves in pride in order to hide our self-loathing. Please help us to measure our worth, not in the darkness of our shortcomings, but in the light of Your mercy. Thank You for such great love.
