Quotes from this episode:
“We’ve been asked to discern since Adam and Eve partook of fruit in the Garden. They partook of the fruit and now they can discern between good and evil. It goes way back…What’s the difference [between good and evil] and how do you find that?…One thing that stood out to me was that discernment involves action on our part. We have to work for it. We have to discern with the intention to act on what we learn.” ~Lindsey Wright
“Discernment is a form of discipline. It’s disciplining our minds. And when we love God, then we will have the desire and motivation to discipline our minds because He doesn’t want us to just be blind followers. He wants us to know the truth, to know why it’s the truth, and not just because He said so, but because we love Him enough to be discerning, to discipline our hearts and our minds. When we learn to discern better, it helps us to recognize His love and His divine design in the things we are studying or just coming across in our daily lives.” ~Lindsey Wright
