Gospel Driven Ambition

Gospel Driven Ambition

As Christians, is it possible to be ambitious in our work and still have our self-worth and identity firmly rooted in Jesus Christ?

The world tells us that ambition is essential to accumulating wealth, fame, and glory for ourselves. The meta-narrative of work today is that it is the primary means by which we make a name for ourselves in this life and prove to the world that we are important, valuable, and worthy.

Of course, this is nothing new. Since the Fall, human beings have been using work to make a name for themselves, rather than to glorify God and serve others.

While Scripture makes clear that creating to make a name for ourselves constitutes improper ambition, the Bible makes equally clear that ambition can indeed be God-honoring, so long as it flows out of a response to the work Christ did on our behalf on the cross. That is the subject we will turn to in tomorrow’s devotional.

“I Can’t Do Play Dates”….and Other Mantra of the Working Mom

“We don’t really do play dates.”…  “Your child is measuring 2 sizes bigger than his current shoes.”…  “The nanny will be here with them (my son and your child).”…  “She’s not my mom, she’s my nanny.”…..  If you are a working mom, the list could go on, right?  And so can the guilt.
