    Discernment

    Special ability consists of intuition and rational thought according to John Maxwell. With innate ability one knows right from wrong. Some decisions seem right at the moment, but down the road are harmful.

    Some call discernment a hunch. They somehow know one person is evil although they appear to be a loving person. Often this power gives them knowledge by feeling that a certain opportunity is a scam. The Bible describes this ability as a gift from God. With this clairvoyance comes the responsibility not to hurt a person, or let victims know this is evil or harmful.

    One pastor’s wife has the ability to walk into a new group of people. She would be able to tell the three people that are gossips, have hidden agendas, and can potentially cause their family trouble in the future. Don’t get two friendly with those specific people. Although she only saw them for an hour, she could tell which were lazy, undisciplined, or truly a good person.

    This ability can stand us in good stead. Internally we just know this opportunity will be advantageous to our career. Most of us don’t possess this  discernment, so be alert to subtle signals we receive during daily exchanges with others.
