Resolved 12

As a young man Jonathan Edwards gave himself 70 resolutions to read weekly and pursue relentlessly. This 13th year of the 2nd millennium I have decided to reread and meditate upon his words, which so intrigued me as a teenager.

12 Resolved – If I take delight in it as a gratification of pride or vanity, or on any such account, immediately to throw it by.

Hmm – Pride & vanity encapsulate my life often. To be this sensitive to your own depravity is convicting yet inspiring.
