Devo Selfish Part two
James 3:13-15 (NIV)
13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
Before you can help an alcoholic they must admit they are an alcoholic. They have to see they have a problem. Think of yourself with sober judgment. We no longer see ambition and especially in our society as something bad. Shakespeare writes about the sin of ambition. George Washington went to great links to cover his ambition, because in his day it was considered a sin. Why? Simply it is selfish. It is bringing glory, honor to one’s self for one’s self. We need to check ourselves to see what motivates us to do what we do. Are you motivated by a purpose to bring you something or motivated to follow Christ out of love. Selfish ambition is love for self not others. This is the reason Satan was thrown out of heaven.
