The following video was very convicting for me. I discovered it at the right time as I have been considering my use of time, especially as it relates to my use of the internet and social media. In the very near future, I will be following the example of Edwards by writing a “social media manifesto.” I am also working on a set of resolutions

15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. (Eph. 5:15-21)

31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (1 Cor. 10:31)

From the YouTube channel:

Jonathan Edwards wanted his present life to be shaped by what would be most important upon entering heaven. Whatever is important there in heaven, must dominate the landscape of my life now. In this sermon, Steve Lawson goes over some of the Resolutions that Jonathan Edwards wrote when he was only 18 and 19 years old.
