Attitudes for Discernment Part 2

Here are the final 5 attitudes to help in your discernment process. 

  1. Be a lion with the heart of a lamb. “God’s grace shapes the contours of their courage and bravery.”  Discernment is not always easy.
  2. Adopt the turtle as your mascot. “Just as a turtle retreats into its shell, so we need to go within to ponder, consider, and contemplate options and possibilities.”
  3. Be aware of your desires; don’t beware them.
  4. Walk the tightrope between the head and the heart. A balance of thinking and feelings is needed.
  5. Make it a family affair. Discernment is not a solitary affair and also includes the Holy Spirit.

Which of these attitudes do you need to foster more of?
