A Doable New Year’s Resolution
As the year has just gotten underway, many will take to creating a list of New Year’s resolutions. Writing a list of resolutions for the new year is not something new. Jonathon Edwards, the late 18th century pastor and theologian, is famously known for writing long lists of resolutions and then striving throughout the year to keep them. Regarding this practice, Mark Noll, Research Professor of History at Regent College, writes: “Typical of many other serious young men of his day, the young Jonathan Edwards drew up a list of resolutions, committing himself to a God-centered life lived in harmony with others.” The list was “probably first written down in 1722 and added to at several times in his lifetime.” Below are a few examples of the sort of resolutions Edwards wrote down and committed himself to pursuing.
