Conditions of Ambition #1

If my ambition, for my family; for my work; for my time is the kingdom of God, then my ambition becomes more an icon, and less an idol.

If my ambition is the kingdom of God, then my family, work, and time must be a sign that points to something that ultimately gives my family, work, and time their value.

If my ambition is the kingdom of God, then I must decrease while He must increase.

If my ambition is the kingdom of God, then my family, work, and time must:

  • be poor in spirit – hoping to be citizens in the kingdom of heaven
  • must mourn – hoping to be comforted
  • must be meek – hoping to become restored stewards of the earth
  • must hunger and thirst for righteousness – hoping to be satisfied
  • must be merciful – hoping to receive mercy
  • must be pure in heart – hoping to see God
  • must be makers of peace – hoping to become the children of God
  • must be persecuted for righteousness’ sake – hoping, again, for citizenship in the kingdom of heaven
  • must be reviled and have evil uttered against us – hoping for the reward of knowing God
