SELFISH AMBITION | David and the Sons of Zeruiah

Listen along as Pastor Dusty shares this message highlighting the difference between Godly Ambition and Selfish Ambition. This message is anchored in 2 Samuel chapters 2-4 where David deals with the personal agendas of various leaders posturing themselves during the transition of leadership after King Saul's death.

Philippians 2:3-4 NIV
3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, 4 not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

This message is part of an ongoing series called David Stories | Exploring Earthy Spirituality. This series aims to cultivate a new appreciation for the variety of ways God demonstrates His love and commitment to mankind throughout the overarching bible narrative threaded through OT stories of David that take us through many relevant topics and ultimately point to Jesus.

*This teaching series was inspired by the book Leap Over A Wall | Earthy Spirituality for the Everyday Christians by Eugene Peterson (1997).
