discernment

If I were to claim I was ‘discerning’ I would, by inference, be claiming to be wise, have right judgement. However, by claiming that I would NOT be discerning. Discernment we can attribute to others though, such as ‘The Wise Men’ of the gospel. They really proved their credentials: travelling into the unknown, giving their gold and frankincense and myrrh to a mere tot in what amounted to a refugee camp. Let our thoughts and actions be worthy of you, O God

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of Godwhat is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans12:2

Following on from the MULOA process members in Sri Lanka had the skills to discern the need for a new programme, ‘Christ Care’. Families bring disabled children to the parish hall to receive free physiotherapy, special education and food. Thank God for eyes to see and hearts to discern.
