Is Ambition Godly?


This world encourages us to act on ambition, and many wonder if ambition is or isn't Godly. The short answer is - it depends. We just need to know the difference between Godly ambition and selfish ambition. 

Selfish ambition destroys, but Godly ambition is life-giving. 
Selfish ambition seeks to please man, but Godly ambition seeks to please God. 
Selfish ambition is short-sighted, but Godly ambition thinks long-term.

Godly ambition builds the Kingdom and furthers the cause of the Gospel. 
As you lead and influence those around you in the coming week, and pursue your ambitions, continually evaluate and bring them to God. Ask Him to bring your ambitions into alignment with His purpose. 

It will always lead to something better than anything you could ever ask, think, or imagine on your own!  

Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. - Proverbs 19:21

All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful, but not all things edify. - 1 Corinthians 10:23
