Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards: #4

4. Resolved, never to do any manner of thing, whether in soul or body, less or more, but what tends to the glory of God; nor be, nor suffer it, if I can avoid it.

A classic Edwards. The construct of the sentence is a bit complicated, but he is basically committing himself to do and be everything only to the glory of God.
Questions for myself (feel free to apply these to yourselves too).
Will I ever say a word that does not constitutes towards the glory of God?
Will I ever participate in a work that does not serve the glory of God?
