Hurry is the great enemy of spiritual life in our day. You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life. (Dallas Willard, late university professor)

It’s more than just your spiritual life that suffers from undue haste. How many times have you discovered an error—whether it’s simply a typo in your manuscript or missing an important appointment—because you were in a hurry? In today’s hectic pace, it’s difficult to slow down, but your physical and emotional life as well as your spiritual well-being will benefit if you do.

Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good; haste makes mistakes (Proverbs 19:2).
