This snippet is very helpful in tempering the enthusiasm we have for church planting. Let’s count our troops and count our costs before we build. One of the first things Driscoll says that he wish he would have done is interned at a church. And…he would have waited. With all the zeal we have to see people come to faith, we would do well to wait a little and get some experience and good theology in our hearts before we go out and shepherd people. Sure, God willl use your efforts (tainted as they may be with sin) but save yourself and your hearers by taking some time to think before you act.
