Ambition

Saw this post and I thought I would address this subject, since it's something I think about pretty often. Ambition is usually touted as good thing—and it can be—but, how do you tell the difference between selfish ambition and godly ambition? There is so much noble and significant work that can be done in the world—but how do you differentiate between what you CAN do and what you were CREATED to do? We all have tremendous gifts and talents, but what should we devote those abilities towards?

It's essential that we examine the motivations behind the goals we set. We can't just give our lives to any cool idea that pops in our head—even if we can accomplish it. I don't want to reach the end of my life having done great things, while leaving the GOD things undone. What's the motivation behind your goals?
