Two Kinds of Wisdom

I'm having trouble with my goals. I have intentions, I have the desire,

I am missing the drive.

And I figured out why... Selfish ambition. I want these things for me.

Not for the glory of God.

13Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
14But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.
15Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.
16For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

17But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.

18Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.~ James 3:13-18

Time to go back, to refocus. Time to run for God.
