One thing life has taught me is that rushing/hurrying is almost always counterproductive. Hurrying, as I understand it, involves pushing oneself beyond one’s optimal level. This leads to inefficiency, error and unnecessary stress. Speed is much better accomplished through focus, persistence and economy of action.
There is not a point that needs to be dwelt upon more earnestly, repeated more frequently, or established more firmly in the minds of all than the impossibility of fallen man meriting anything by his own best good works. Salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
