Day 3 of our reflections on Ambition. Today how can we have ambition to value others and to demonstrate that value in how we treat them?
The 2nd day of our reflections on Ambition and lining our ambitions up with what the Ambitions of Jesus are.
As part of the Challenge from Alan on Sunday, let’s take time each day this week to reflect on the ambitions from Mark 9:30-50. We are posting the clips from the sermon each day to help refresh what Alan shared.
