Discernment is the power to tell the good from the bad [and] the genuine from the counterfeit… (Samuel Johnson, 18th century English literary critic)

Johnson went on to say, “…and to prefer the good and the genuine to the bad and the counterfeit.” As important as it is to have the wisdom to determine good from bad and right from wrong, it is just as important to choose the genuine over the counterfeit. With today’s plethora of questionable ethics in social media and advertising, godly discernment is critical.

King Solomon prayed, “So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong “ (1 Kings 3:9).
