G3 - Discernment
This week, we're focusing on DISCERNMENT!
DISCERNMENT is carefully considering what is happening and why. The opposite of DISCERNMENT is IGNORANCE, failing to understand people and circumstances.
A good guide on a whitewater rafting trip knows how to "read the river". They can look at the surface of the water and understand what's going on underneath. This helps them carefully navigate the boat just where they want it.
A discerning person can do the same thing with people and circumstances. They have learned how to "read people" to understand what's going on below the surface. Discernment helps them navigate relationships and situations to resolve tension, provide care and share insight.
Who in your life has been a discerning person?
