Ambition involves a desire to achieve something, usually requiring determination and hard work.
The difficulty arises when we consider where our ambition lies.
Are we ambitious to achieve financial security?
Is our ambition driven by power and authority?
Would our ambition be characterized by selfish and physical priorities?
Or, can we say our ambition is motivated by a spiritual focus?
When our leadership is driven by the kind of ambition that seeks to please the Lord, the church will grow in the grace and knowledge of our Savior.
