Did you ever notice, in the study of grammar,
how some words are pronounced differently?
For instance, one of the words in the title above: discernment.

Usually, words beginning with “di” are pronounced with a long “I,”
like dissect.
Sometimes, words beginning with “di” are pronounced with a
short “I,” like dissident.
Words that have the consonants “sc” are usually pronounced
with a hard “c,” like disconnect.
Yet, the word “discernment” is pronounced “di zern’ ment.”

Seems the more I study grammar, the less I understand it!

Phil 1:9
And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and
more in knowledge and all discernment,

LIGHT from the WORD.

Knowledge is the amassing of factual information.
Your brain does that.
Discernment is perceiving and comprehending.
Your heart, or spirit, does that.
Wisdom is USING knowledge and discernment rightly.

Paul says his prayer is that the church at Philippi, will “abound still
more and more”
– or GROW in: “knowledge” and “discernment.”

He prays they will grow in factual information about God and their
relationship with God.
He prays they will grow in comprehending God and their
relationship with God.

The reason for this prayer, Paul says, is:
“That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be
sincere and without offence till the day of Christ...”
(Phil. 1:10)

Without both knowledge and discernment,
we cannot make good decisions.
It is important to study the Word of God and learn how we are
to relate to God and godliness.

Are you:
“abound(ing) still MORE and MORE in knowledge and all
concerning God and your relationship to Him?

Are you: acting in wisdom, using information and discernment
to make decisions rightly?

Love ya!
