Jonathan Edwards was a preacher in the 1700’s. You’ve probably heard about his famous sermon called Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. It’s really interesting to contemplate the contribution of Edwards and his contemporaries on our current conclusions. But that’s another post.
I stumbled onto a blog called A Puritans Mind, where I found a list of resolutions that Jonathan Edwards wrote for himself. He prefaced his resolutions with this:
“Being sensible that I am unable to do anything without God’s help, I do humbly entreat him by his grace to enable me to keep these Resolutions, so far as they are agreeable to his will, for Christ’s sake. Remember to read over these Resolutions once a week.”
Which of his resolutions is your favorite? Which do you find odd?
