Zeal for Good

Sometimes you’ve got to be zealous for what is good and not worry about the outcome. When I go out on a limb, I ask myself, “What is the worst thing that could happen here?” Usually, it’s not that bad. It’s things like, “I’ll be embarrassed”—well, that’s nothing new. Or, “I’ll lose their friendship”—risky, but many times by taking a stance you earn their respect and strengthen your friendship.

Then, I consider, “What is the best thing that could happen if I do this zealous, good thing?” Lives could be improved, hearts could be changed—it could be incredible!
