Little reminders from God

I hear "selfish ambition" a lot in my head, besides pride, that's a big one for me. HE helps me, it's a second by second process. Thank GOD for His words. We have them to teach, uplift, encourage, correct and instruct, and they sure do that.

So, these are me.

Galations 5:19-21
19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Philippians 2:3
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.

James 3:14
13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his 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. 15Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.

James 3:16
For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
