The Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards: #11

11. Resolved, when I think of any theorem in divinity to be solved, immediately to do what I can towards solving it, if circumstances don't hinder.
Edwards is saying that he wishes not to waste any time in finding out more about God (so he says immediately), yet, learning in theology is not the end in itself, nor is the highest priority (so he says if circumstances don't hinder). I think it is a helpful one, especially as we try to serve and minister to each other, that put theology as a priority, but not of the highest priority.
