Pride

Does putting your feet in water
And flapping your limbs in the shallow end
Make you an expert swimmer?
Does masking your photo with word art
And applying numerous filters
Make you a good editor?
Or is soldering a loose wire
Such a big achievement to you
That you walk chest high in pride
That you are an electric engineer?

Does knowing some verses in the Bible
Make you a saint?
Or because you sing in the choir
You become an expert in music?
Because you dress to the nines
Do you feel so fine
That you look down upon others?
Or does going to church
Tithing and offering
Make you holier than thou?

He humbles those who exalts themselves, He says
He exalts those who humble themselves, He adds
So,
Do you exalt or humble yourself?
