From my morning reading, Hughson's With Christ in God:
Though we must serve God with a generous spirit, care must be taken lest we mar our service by over-eagerness and impetuosity. There is always time enough and strength enough to accomplish the divine will, and many a soul has been led into sin by an over-eagerness to do something for God. The prudent soul does nothing with precipitancy. The working of the gift of counsel fills us with a spirit of patience, of calm, which indicates that we know the strength of God is our own. We are willing to tarry the Lord's leisure. Our faith in Him will permit of no apprehension of failure. (326).
