Devotions from Judy’s heart
On Saturdays we talk to Ann’s family on Skype, and last Saturday I was in the process of baking sweet rolls when we talked. Because I have baked lots of rolls in my life time, I can tell by the aroma when they are about ready to come out of the oven. I got a whiff and sure enough, I went and looked and each time they were done.
I have often
thought of the sense of smell as spiritual discernment…sniffing out what really is! Discernment is needed more than ever as our values and convictions are getting tested in our culture today. We need discernment constantly since we are all vulnerable to getting “hoodwinked”. Something can sound and look good but may not be at all. In Eph. 5 we are told “Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord.” Let us not be naive and taken in by the false, but let us ask Him to give us discerning hearts.
