Pride Is Not a Cat

This may come as a surprise, but pride
is not the strutting Siamese
swishing a curl in her swaying tail.
No, she is not that, for pride
has many more lives than the nine
they give to a cat.

And I think I get
what the apostle meant
when he said I die
daily.

So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh—for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

(Romans 8:12-13)

  1. I’m here from Bonnie’s today. First of all – amen – pride is the Siamese in the room that needs to be humbled. I remember the song from 101 Dalmatians, “We are Siamese, if you please. We are Siamese if you don’t. please. If our soul is to be as beautiful as a Siamese – our pride has to go. Thank you for this today – I hearted it lots – and God Bless and keep you and all of yours.
