The Lord has provided us with spiritual resources that we can draw on to stand firm in this life. Like any asset, it is important we keep an eye on these valuables.
Resource definition: a stock or supply of money, materials, staff, and other assets that can be drawn on by a person or organization in order to function effectively. The word is from the Old French dialect of the early 17th century: resourdre ‘rise again, recover’.
In Philippians 4:1-9 Paul refers to four “resources” we should watch.

Ultimately there are two controlling ambitions: one is for our own glory; the other is for God’s glory.
In Philippians 3:10-21 Paul is telling us:
1. It is ok to be ambitious.

3. If your ambition is just for personal satisfaction, it will lead to destruction.
4. Remembering your citizenship is in heaven will help keep your focus.
