Being sensible that I am unable to do anything without God’s help, I do humbly entreat him by his grace to enable me to keep these Resolutions, so far as they are agreeable to his will, for Christ’s sake. (Written between December 1722 and July 1723) (Resolutions 1-21 were written at one sitting in 1722)
Resolution # 1
What ever I do, I will do it so that in doing it I reflect and reveal God's character and nature making His character more attractive, more desirable, and more honorable to those who observe my actions. I will do what ever I do for my own good and for my own pleasure as long as I live, no matter how long it takes to fulfill this resolution. I will also fulfill my God given responsibility to do good or to benefit mankind as much as I am able, no matter how much trouble it is or what difficulty I face.
What about you?
Have you and are you resolved that everything you do, whether it be eating or simply drinking, you are doing it in order to reveal character traits of our God in order to make them clearer and more attractive those who observe your actions?
