Roots of Boastful Pride

Not For Sale

Beware your heart is not lifted up by pride,
No thoughts of your Lord God deep inside,
He is your guide through the cruel waste;
Dangers in a land without water you faced;
Making water to pour out of a hard rock,
Bread just for the picking up as you walk;
So your pride is broken and hearts tested,
Because of everything God has invested;
Say not your power and hands got wealth,
That prevention kept you in good health;
Rather that the Lord your God bestowed,
The power and wealth within your abode.
We may think of owning a lot and as rich,
But forgetting that there's a little hitch;
Houses and fancy cars you think you own,
Are really belonging to God that is on loan;
Flashing brings out the pride as we boast,
But pride a pet peeve by the Heavenly Host;
Building more pride is more sin you achieve,
With chances being likely you will deceive.
