Colossians 3:23-24, “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”
Ambition is a part of life. Everyone has it. The question is not whether you are ambitious but the content of your ambitions. For our ambition to be healed it must be crucified.
Three tests of a healthy ambition are:
1. “Are you content in your work?”
2. “How do you face failure or being seen by others as weak and ineffective?”
3. “Do you celebrate the accomplishments and success of your peers?”
“True ambition is not what we thought it was. True ambition is the profound desire to live usefully and walk humbly under the grace of God.” Bill Wilson
