In class this week, Michelle Myers broke down the difference between selfish ambition and Kingdom ambition with a deep dive into God’s Word.
She also busted the myth of having to wait to be ambitious. Jesus said — “the harvest is plentiful (aka – the work is ready!) but the workers are few” (Matthew 9:37).
If we find ourselves looking for something to do, we’re likely waiting for the wrong work. King David had to wait 15-20 years to become king, but he got to work right away — killing Goliath, winning battles, serving Saul, etc.
But first, she gave us this little quiz, because it’s hard to learn and grow if we don’t first evaluate.
Is it difficult for you to celebrate others?
Is it tough for you to turn your brain off/rest/slow down?
Do you struggle to listen to others?
Do you try to do God’s work without God?
Do you frequently dream of getting your “big break?”
Do you often pursue something new after watching someone have success?
Do you equate your purpose in life with your achievements?
Count your # of yes’s to figure out how much self is included in your ambition.
