A discerning mind

May 2

Daily Bible Reading: 1 Kings 3 – 5

Verse of the Day: 1 Kings 3:9 – “Give thy servant therefore an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and evil; for who is able to judge this thy great people?”

In this passage, we see that of all the things that Solomon could have asked for, he asks for discernment. In its simplest definition, discernment is nothing more than the ability to decide between truth and error, right and wrong. Discernment is the process of making careful distinctions in our thinking about truth. In other words, the ability to think with discernment is synonymous with an ability to think biblically.

To think biblically, one must know God personally and know His Word. Take time today to read and meditate on what God teaches. Let Him immerse you in His truth.

Prayer: Lord God, as Solomon prayed and received, I ask you to give me Your discernment and wisdom. I ask this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
