Dealing With Difficulties ‘Ambition’


Ambition, is not wrong in itself, it is how we use our ambitions that declares the type of People we are.

Philippians 2 verse 3: {Message Bible}:

“Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead”.

Healthy Ambition, also cares about the ambitions of others. Ambition for the things of God. Ambition for others to know Him, as Our Lord and Our Friend.

Ephesians 5 verse 15 and 16:{Message Bible}

“Watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get . These are desperate times!”

Unhealthy Ambition, can lead to a dog eat dog, situations, where people will get hurt. James 3 verse 14: {Message Bible}

“Mean-spirited ambition isn’t wisdom. Boasting that you are wise isn’t wisdom. Twisting the truth to make yourself sound wise isn’t wisdom”.

Matthew 20 verses 25 to 28; {Message Bible}

“You’ve observed how godless rulers throw their weight around, how quickly a little power goes to their heads. Its not going to be that way with you. Whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Whoever ants to be first among you must be your salve {servant}. This is what The Son of Man has done; He came to serve, not be served—and then to give away His life in exchange for the many who are held hostage”.

It is good to have healthy ambition, but we have been Crucified with Him. so our life is all about Him and never about us.

God Bless.
