What's your ambition?

What do you aspire to?

What is your focus for the new year?  

Where are you going?  

Is it the right place?  

Is your goal clear?

What's the ambition of your life?  

I ask that because it matters, it shapes you, it drives your decisions and makes you into the person you will become.  

Ambition is powerful...it transforms us for good or bad.

If your ambition is to be rich you will throw away people for the goal of gaining wealth.

If your ambition is fame you will do whatever it takes to be noticed, to "make a mark, to become someone."

If your ambition is power you will lie to get it, steal to keep it and hurt others to gain more.

Ambition forms us, so it's vital it be the right ambition.

Here's one that Paul offered for your consideration,

"Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him." 2 Cor. 5:9

Ambition can destroy you or it can aim you and transform you.  

What's your ambition in this new year?
