The Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards

70 resolutions written by Reverend Jonathan Edwards. This may be good to go over as the new year comes, although we shouldn't wait for a new year to come before taking benefit from it.
I hope some can gain from it.

Resolved, to think much on all occasions of my own dying, and of the common circumstances which attend death.

Resolved, never to do any thing, which I should be afraid to do, if I expected it would not be above an hour, before I should hear the last trump.

Resolved, never to speak anything that is ridiculous, sportive, or matter of laughter on the Lord' s day.

No matter what one thinks about the austerity of such statements, these things are a reproof to us of how lightly we take the things of God. At least I do. Lord help me.

I have his Resolution No. 5 taped onto the front page of my Daytimer:

"Resolved, never to lose one moment of time; but improve it the most profitable way I possibly can."
