“Haste makes waste” is not a verse of scripture but it does include some biblical wisdom.
II Thes 3:10, 11 “For even when we were with you, we commanded you this; If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies.”
When it comes to where you will spend eternity or in what ministry will I serve my Savior you must make sure that speed or complacency are not involved in the decision. When you’re moving too fast you tend to make a lot of mistakes. At least that is my experience. My many experiences I unfortunately must add. And you can end up going very fast – but in the wrong direction!
Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the ends thereof are the ways of death.”
When it comes to eternal life there is a way to find the Way! You must go to the one source of absolute truth that we have. That is the one book that God authored and it contains truth for the ages.
2 Tim 3:16-17 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
John 3:3 “Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
John 14:6 “And Jesus said unto them, I am the way, the truth and the life, no one can come unto the Father but by Me.”
To those who listen to God and are‘born again’ God has provided you with special spiritual talents having nothing to do with natural talents and are to be used for His purpose for your life.
To learn more about them you will need to become a student of God’s word.
Rom 12:6a “Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them:”
2 Tim 2:15 “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Hebrews 12:1-2 ” Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
