In a world where ambition often compels people to do whatever it takes to rise to positions of power over others, God calls His people to a new way of living. We are to do nothing out of selfish ambition and to lay aside the weight of sin that ensnares us. If you want to be someone who truly "rises up," make it your ambition to humbly love and serve God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. Ambition is short-sighted if our focus is not on God.
