Zeal is passion for a purpose we deeply value. We follow a vision of what is possible with enthusiasm and ardor. When we are zealous, we give our all. Zeal is fueled by our belief and faith. We do all that we can to serve a cause we believe to be real and true. We need tolerance as the ballast for our zeal when others’ beliefs differ from our own. Zeal is the fire in our belly. It illumines even the smallest task with joy.
In Family Life
The virtue of zeal in a family is a radiant flame that fuels the collective spirit and drives members to pursue their family vision and individual aspirations with unwavering enthusiasm. Zeal is the driving force that propels family members to invest time and effort into strengthening their bonds, fostering open communication, and creating cherished memories. It thrives in an environment where everyone is committed to the family’s harmony, resilience, and continued evolution. It is an essential virtue that ignites the spirit of unity and shared purpose within the family circle.
“Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal. The winner is he who gives himself to his work body and soul.”
— Charles Buxton
