It's in us.

Pride leads to every other vice: 
it is the complete anti-God state of mind.
| c.s lewis |

What is this disease? 

This deadly, silent sin that sits like lord of the underworld,

laughing at us.

We scurry around the surface 

plucking at the weeds,

thinking that selfishness, fear, cruelty, anger, 

[my friend, the list goes on]

thinking these all begin and end,

with no relation to each other.
Oh yes,

we think we know the problem, 

we think we know the fix,

but when someone says, 

"perhaps its pride"

we lash out in annoyance 

saying,

"oh it's not me, it's just _____".

There's always something else to blame it on, 

someone else to point at,

but we never turn the finger to our chest 

to reveal,

it is only us.

Pride is spiritual cancer: it eats up the very possibility of love,
or contentment, or even common sense.

    1. Me too, Nina, me too. But I suppose that's the pride talking :D I've been reading Mere Christianity by Lewis and just finished a chapter on pride (thus this blog post.. I was more than a little convicted). It was SO GOOD and so quotable:)

  6. Utterly amazing. C.S Lewis was an amazing writer, and I have to admit that the fangirl inside me took a bit of a meltdown at the quotes :) They were lovely, and I've given you a little follow <3
