Pride

2015-11-17 11.35.34A Poem by Giona Melo*

Pride is a thing that can clog love from our heart.
Pride is a thing that can keep us apart.
Pride is a thing that can hinder our soul.
Pride is a thing that can crush us all-in-all.

The only thing I want you to know,
What the Bible said so,
“One’s pride will bring him low,
But he who is lowly in spirit
Will obtain honor.” Proverbs 29:23 (ESV)

I just don’t have such time.
I just want you to know how to listen,
Because of Christ, humility is joyfully given.

* Giona is the unica hija (only daughter) of Open Eyes Mission founder and president Glem Melo. She is 11.

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.
