Living with danger (& loving it)
Light knows no fellowship with darkness as righteousness shares no agreement with wickedness.
Mankind abhors discrimination, for his heart is not trained in discernment.
Solomon's wisdom could not be measured. (1 Kings 4:29). He exercised it in all times, through all thoughts and at all turns. That is the nature of true wisdom. It is as endless as its giver.
There are not two sources of wisdom. Wisdom hunts for and then reveals the truth. (See the tale of two prostitutes in 1 Kings 3:16-28)
Is not the path to truth walked by those wise to divide good and evil?
In the dividing of right and wrong both wisdom and courage are required. God holds these without limit.
When the brave man puts the interests of His Lord first, he sides with Jesus and discerns righteousness.
There are two kinds of Christians: those who sincerely believe in God and those who, just as sincerely, believe that they believe. You can tell them apart by their actions in decisive moments. ~ Richard Wurmbrand
Yes, as with the good Lord, the disciple must too discriminate - dividing right from wrong, good from evil, and truth from lies.
As the days grow increasingly darker, as wickedness multiplies alarmingly there is no place in the shadows a disciple may claim.
