Discernment is the ability to assess
Correctly, to see the reality of a
Given situation, to distinguish between
Right and wrong, given our spiritual hygiene,
And to recognize what role our words and deeds play
In social interactions and our happiness.
One can know the essential from the optional,
The primary from the secondary, the real
From the unreal, and absolute darkness from light
Through discernment. Closely related to insight,
Discernment is recognizing what’s most ideal
In the moment. It clarifies one’s rationale.
Discernment is protection form being deceived
Spiritually. It is freedom form bondage.
It serves as a catalyst to spiritual
Development. It can become a natural
Way of being. It is but one’s choice to engage
The power of discernment in all that’s perceived.
Examine everything carefully. Hold fast to
That which is good and let go of all that is not.
Take time in making decisions. Pray for guidance.
Be focused on the truth in any circumstance.
How you go about your living matters a lot.
Stay spiritually focused in all you do.
