Ambition



When is Ambition Good?


1 Thessalonians 4:11-12
"This should be your ambition: to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands, just as we commanded you before."

Ambition is good when it is directed not at the size of an accomplishment but at the quality of our character.

Romans 15:20
"My mission has always been to preach the good news where the name of Christ has never been." Paul's great ambition was to preach about Christ around the world.

How Can We Use Ambition to Glorify God?


Philippians 2:3
"Don't live to make a good impression on others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourself."

Selfish ambition becomes Godly ambition when transformed by a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.


PROMISE FROM GOD:
Psalm 119: 1-5
"Happy are people of Integrity, who follow the law of the Lord. Happy are those who search for him with all their hearts."
