Resolution #52

How would you look back on your time on earth? Following that examination; how would you approach today when viewing it as something you would ponder on in the distant future knowing you would not relive this day? Jonathan Edwards resolved on the matter:

“I frequently hear persons in old age say how they would live, if they were to live their lives over again: Resolved, That I will live just so as I can think I shall wish I had done, supposing I live to old age.”

-Jonathan Edwards, Resolutions, July 8, 1723.
