The power or faculty of the mind by which it distinguishes one thing from another; power of viewing differences in objects, and their relations and tendencies; penetrative and discriminate mental vision; acuteness; sagacity; insight; as, the errors of youth often proceed from the want of discernment.
Discernment is God's call to intercession, never to faultfinding. Corrie Ten Boom
My choices, including those related to the day-to-day aspects of life, like the use of a modest car, are related to a spiritual discernment that responds to a need that arises from looking at things, at people and from reading the signs of the times. Discernment in the Lord guides me in my way of governing. Pope Francis
Seeing reality for what it is is what we call discernment. The work of discernment is very hard. Lewis B. Smedes
