  • Resolutions Concerning Myself
  • Here are several personal resolutions made by the late Dr. Robert G. Lee (1927-1960) that every minister should consider. For that matter, every Christian should embrace these resolutions.

    I will be joyful that life may give me wings.

    I will be courageous that there shall be no binding fears.

    I will be balanced that neither work, nor play, nor rest, nor worship shall lose its proper share.

    I will be self-restraint that thoughts of failure shall not hold me back.

    I will be self-controlled that emotions shall not be dominant.

    I will be intelligent that straight thinking and knowledge shall direct all actions.

    I will be healthy that my body shall not fail to respond.

    I will be clean in spirit, mind, and action that there shall be no shame.

    I will be good-tempered that annoyance shall not irritate.

    I will be patient that discouragement shall not seem final.

    I will be persistent that the will may carry throught to completion.

    I will be prepared that emergency shall not find me in confusion.
