Have a Discerning Day!

A discerning man keeps wisdom in view, but a fool’s eyes wander to the ends of the earth. Proverbs 17:24

One of my professors in college modeled the first half of this verse. Even in the middle of his lessons, he would pause and look around the room, point someone out and ask that person about something in his life, especially if that person had requested prayer for something. You just knew that as he searched the room he was praying and trying to be discerning. Out of all the classes I had in college, his notes were the ones I kept and occasionally browse through.

Throughout your day today, pray for wisdom in EVERYTHING you do, not just once at the beginning of the day. Ask God to help you to minister to people where they are hurting. God will bless you for such ministry.
