7.13 Is it wrong that I am ambitious?
Vocation - #OnlineSaints
As long as your drive and desire to achieve something are in line with God’s plan for you – always with great attention for him and your fellow human beings – ambition can be something good.
John the Baptist was ambitious in the sense that he wanted to preach about Jesus and build up a community of followers. Nothing could stop him, not even the danger of death. He was ready to give up everything for his love for God. Do you want to live like that?
