The gift of discernment is no small gift. With it comes wisdom and spiritual knowledge that invites us to know truth, experience truth and live truth. We must not buy into every thing new under the sun, simply because there is nothing new under the Son. All has been made complete through Christ. Be wise and buy not into the temptations of the world. Matthew 24:3-5 3 While He was seated on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately and said, Tell us, when will this take place, and what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end (the completion, the consummation) of the age? 4 Jesus answered them, Be careful that no one misleads you [deceiving you and leading you into error]. 5 For many will come in (on the strength of) My name [appropriating the name which belongs to Me], saying, I am the Christ (the Messiah), and they will lead many astray. |
(taken from dictionary) Discernment is the ability to obtain sharp perceptions or to judge well (or the activity of so doing). In the case of judgment, discernment can be psychological or moral in nature. Within judgment, discernment involves going past the mere perception of something and making nuanced judgments about its properties or qualities. Considered as a virtue, a discerning individual is considered to possess wisdom, and be of good judgement; especially so with regard to subject matter often overlooked by others. Christianity
In Christianity, the word may have several meanings. It can be used to describe the process of determining Gods desire in a situation or for one's life or identifying the true nature of a thing such as discerning between good and evil. In large part, it describes the interior search for an answer to the question of one's vocation, namely, determining whether or not God is calling one to the married life, single, consecrated, ordained ministry or any other calling.
