3 Reasons Everyone Should Have Ambition

Sometimes people use the word “ambition” like it’s a four-letter word.  “She’s just ambitious.”  What’s wrong with ambition?  I guess it depends what we’re ambitious FOR?  Ambition is commonly defined as “An eager or strong desire to achieve something, such as fame or power.”

A God-given ambition grows out of these 3 truths:

  1. We are created by God and God made us for a purpose.  So as long as we’re ambitious in the area of our giftedness and it’s not a selfish desire for something, then we’re just seeking to live out what God made us for.
  2. We are given responsibility over this world.  And that’s a big and ambitious job!
  3. We are made to reflect God’s image in this world.
