Resolved 16

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.

16 Resolved – Never to speak evil of anyone so that it shall tend to his dishonor, more or less, upon no account, except for some real good.

Hmm – Oh to use my tongue for the good others rather than of tearing down.
