Word of the Day... May 15, 2014...


Think with Discernment,
by Charles R. Swindoll

My son, let them not vanish from your sight;
Keep sound wisdom and discretion,
So they will be life to your soul
And adornment to your neck.  Proverbs 3:21-22

And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ;  Philippians 1:9-10


Discernment is essential. Undiscerning love spawns and invites more heresy than any of us are ready to believe. One of the tactics of survival when facing "the flaming arrows of the evil one" (Ephesians 6:16) is to make certain we have cinched up the belt of truth rather tightly around ourselves. And what helps us do battle with the enemy also strengthens us in relationships with friends.


A Christian without discernment is like a submarine in a harbor plowing full speed ahead without radar or periscope. Or a loaded 747 trying to land in dense fog without instruments or radio. Lots of noise, a great deal of power, good intentions, until . . . bam! Disaster. It happens day in, day out . . . with frightening regularity.


Do I hear you say you want discernment but don't know where to go to find it?


Go to your knees. James 1:5 promises wisdom to those who ask for it.
Go to the Word. Psalm 119:98-100 offers insight beyond our fondest dreams.
Go to the wise. Discernment is better caught than taught. Those who have the disease are often highly contagious.


This offer is good throughout life and comes with a satisfaction-guaranteed clause. All are welcome to apply.  I hope that you enjoyed this daily devotion as much as I did.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!!  God bless you!!!
