Try me, and know my anxieties
"Many of us have been brought up to believe that to judge is wrong but to discern is alright; judgment is negative, discernment is positive. Somehow discerning and perceiving sounds much better (and more 'spiritual') to us than 'judging'. However, our English dictionaries define discernment as judgment and judgment as "discernment - making critical distinctions to achieve a balanced viewpoint".
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God!
Father, the longing of my being is to see You, to have a singleness of vision. Make my eye single, that my whole body might be filled with Light.
