Discernment

Chuck Swindoll on Discernment:
Is it a valuable trait? Answer for yourself. When God told Solomon to make a wish---any wish---and it would be granted, the king responded:
"Give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil." (1 Kings 3:9)
And who doesn't know about the wisdom of Solomon to this very day? Paul informed us that discernment is one characteristic that accompanies genuine spirituality (1 Corinthians 2:14-16). The writer of Hebrews 5:14 called it a mark of maturity. Discernment gives one a proper frame of reference, a definite line separating good and evil. It acts as an umpire in life and blows the whistle on the spurious. It's as particular as a pathologist peering into a microscope. Discernment picks and chooses its dates with great care. It doesn't fall for fakes
