Killed by Zeal
Zeal is a positive word. We need zeal to live our lives and to do the things we need to do. But I learnt that zeal can kill too. Zeal can cause us to be insensitive to others and just wanting to “bulldoze” our way through. It can cause us to disregard whether those who have less zeal compared to us or those who have a different aspect of zeal are able to catch up with us. When the differences are too great, instead of catching on to the zeal, we are killed by it. When we are showing our zeal the next time, be sensitive to the people around us. Others may not be feeling be same way you feel. How you are feeling might actually “kill” them rather than excite them. They may actually be put off by what you are doing.
