ambition…

Get to work Philip!  Look at all the gifts God has given to you.  Use them now to serve the Kingdom of God…  You are an entrepreneur… you are a businessman… a leader… a motivational speaker… stop using them selfishly for yourself… start using them to further the Kingdom of God…  

all that baloney is totally bogus!

Any voice, impression, thing that is saying I am Mr. Wonderful, I am needed to further the Kingdom, I am gifted to accomplish great things for God…. any thing… like that is from the other kingdom.  It exalts me… it does not exalt God… no matter how many times I say  “that everything I do is for the glory of God”.

I loved it… all the attention… all the admiration of others… all the compliments, the recognition, the speaking engagements… how many times did I need to hear “You should write a book, Phil”, before I was thinking more highly of myself than I should have?  Not very many.

I turned all my  “natural selfish ambition”  to achieve, to accomplish, to build a bigger mousetrap… to change the world… to whatever… and put it to work for God.

Right…       😦

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. (Philippians 2:3 NIV)
