“…he [Phineas] was zealous for my sake… – Num. 25:11

Zeal (as one saith) is the dagger which love draws in God’s quarrel – John Flavel

 Zeal is like fire; in a chimney it is one of the best servants, but out of a chimney it is one of the worst masters – Thomas Brooks

 Discretion without zeal is slow paced, and zeal without discretion  is heady; let, therefore, zeal spur on discretion, and discretion rein in zeal – George Swinnock
