Wait, you thought ambition was good, right? What could be so bad about striving to achieve your goals? You see, that's just it. Relying on yourself is a subtle act of being independent of God; becoming your own god and that's pride. That's why David in Psalm 131 cautions us about ambition. "I have calmed and quieted my ambition," he says. The better option? David encourages us to trust God and be content with what he provides. Are you trusting God or taking measures into your own hands?
Today a word of caution about ambition.
