Ambition // Mindful Minute

Ambition is defined as the strong desire to achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work. The problem is ambition can lead to self-centered thinking. “Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself. Each of you should be concerned not only about your own interests, but about the interests of others as well.” Philippians 2:3-4. As Christians, we should instead focus on spreading the good news. “But I do not consider my life worth anything to myself, so that I may finish my task as the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24. “You should have the same attitude toward one another that Christ Jesus had…” Philippians 2:5, and “Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may be blameless and pure, children of God without blemish though you live in a crooked and perverse society, in which you shine as lights in the world.” Philippians 2:14-25. The world is lost, it needs Jesus. “There is therefore now no condemnation for these who are in Christ Jesus.” Romans 8:1. Don’t let your ambition get in the way of God’s Grace for yourself or others.
