STOP AND THINK – This is the true joy in life—being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. (George Bernard Shaw, late Nobel-Prize-winning Irish playwright)

Shaw continues: “. . . being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap.” No doubt, all of us would like to be involved in something we consider to be a “mighty” purpose.

If it is recognized by others as a worthy objective, all the better. The real issue, of course, is whether the project will have lasting value for others in the community.
It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good (Galatians 4:18).
