As you finalize your New Year's resolutions, you might want to read over the 70 resolutions that Jonathan Edwards sought to live by. Here are a few choice examples:

Resolved, never to do anything, which I should be afraid to do, if it were the last hour of my life.

Resolved, when I feel pain, to think of the pains of martyrdom, and of hell.

Resolved, always to do that, which I shall wish I had done when I see others do it. Aug. 11, 1723.

Notice "lose 15 lbs" was not among his resolutions ;-)
