My friend Rev. Mudd has a new post on how to balance Godly ambition and grateful contentment. Let me encourage you to click over to it here and offer an encouraging comment.

Yet, we should be content in our faith in his work for us. Rev. Mudd nuances it differently–and probably much more practically! Check it out.
