R. T. Kendall (Chosen Books)
What drives us to do what we’re called to do? Ambition.
R.T. Kendall’s latest release, Finding Your Heart’s Desire, explains this human propensity propelling our hidden agendas. Though ambition is neither good nor evil, God uses it to encourage us to please Him—to make pleasing Him the driving desire of our hearts. As we fulfill God’s will and plan for our lives, Kendall says, it yields a heavenly reward to be given when we stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Kendall motivates us to bypass the applause of man and seek the praise of God as we become aware of our hidden motives and develop into godly thinkers. The former pastor also challenges us to understand ourselves better, learn to be patient and non-judgmental with each other, and to use our ambition to gloryify God.
Ultimately, true satisfaction will not be found in egocentric endeavors but in lives that position themselves to serve God’s interests. Self-seeking profit only forfeits the greatest reward of all—God’s approval. This book reminds us that more of God should be our highest aim. —Ibelisse Sanchez
