Good Day, Friends; Discernment is one of our most useful tools to combat the evil in the world that we encounter more and more these days. In Matthew 12:35 (NLT) we are told, "35 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart."

Our discernment of those who are evil allows us to recognize them and to attempt to plant the seeds of Truth with them. However, if they do not respond positively, we are told in scripture to move on. Matthew 7:6 (NLT), "6 Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you."

We are to distance ourselves from evil if our attempt to plant the Seeds of Truth falls on deaf ears. Our efforts are best spent in providing Truth to those who may listen and turn to God for guidance. May God Bless.
