Seeking Him Podcast

70 Before 20

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: It’s the season for making New Year’s resolutions, which makes me think about Jonathan Edwards. He made seventy resolutions for his life.

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

Nancy: What’s amazing to me is that he wrote all of these by the time he turned twenty years old.

Jonathan Edwards: Let there be something of benevolence in all that I speak.

Nancy: Jonathan Edwards learned to serve the Lord early in life.

Jonathan Edwards: Resolved, to inquire every night as I am going to bed, what sin I have committed, and also at the end of every week, month, and year.

Nancy:  Are you teaching your children the importance of seeking the Lord? I wouldn’t expect them to write a list of resolutions quite like Jonathan Edwards, but are they being challenged to grow in their character and their relationship with God?

Jonathan Edwards: Resolved, to live with all my might while I do live.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
