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.
