Something to think and pray about this week
Without discernment, there is no experience of God, and, just the same, we cannot speak of discernment without prayer. The most interesting Old Testament characters are people of discernment. And the great work of Jesus involves getting us all to discern. He does not offer us ready-made answers but breaks down our constructs and discerns the truth with the Father from a place of common sense. Before taking any major decisions, he first listens to God through prayer.
