Quote from The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment

 


A wise man will know that there are times when a person needs to be answered and there are times when it is better to remain silent. A discerning man, though will know when he should give an answer and when he should know better. The wise man knows that both of these situations can be true but it is the discerning man who understands which is best to use in a given situation. Discernment skilfully applies wisdom to a real-life situation.
