Are You Discerning as a Deer

The other day as I was watching some deer out my window, I wondered how they knew which plants to eat and which to avoid because they’re poisonous. After some research, I discovered that instinct, experience, and training keeps them from eating harmful things. What about us? Are we discerning as deer about what we eat? I’m afraid too often I haven’t been. I’ve selected the chips instead of the apple, the fast food instead of fresh food. Does it make any difference to God? Yes. 1 Corinthians 6:19 tells us that the believer’s body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. If we haven’t been discerning as deer about we eat, we can ask Christ to fill us. We can pay attention when He prompts us, “Eat this. Don’t eat that.” To learn how to better discern Christ’s voice, get a copy of my study, Listen UP. Let’s move toward being discerning.
