Slow Down, You Move Too Fast . . .

Posted on

Words of wisdom from pastor Mark Buchanan, when asked what was his most profound regret in life:

“Being in a hurry. Getting to the next thing without fully entering the thing in front of me. I cannot think of a single advantage I’ve ever gained from being in a hurry. But a thousand broken and missed things, tens of thousands, lie in the wake of all the rushing… Through all that haste I thought I was making up time. It turns out I was throwing it away.”

– as quoted by A. Voskamp in her challenging book, One Thousand Gifts.

  1. Ok Lord. I get it. It seems that One Thousand Gifts has been mentioned to me at least four times in the past month…by a variety of means. I'm going to order it now from the Library. THANKS JO FOR THE POST!
