The Nature of Discernment

"The truth we see depends upon the people we are." ~ PT Forsyth

I came upon this quote again today as I am working through 1 Corinthians in my personal time.  Meditate on it for a while.  Truth does not depend upon us but our ability to see and discern truth does.  Our ability to see truth depends upon the kind of people we are!  This is not something we can generate in ourselves but is the result of God's work in us by the gospel, applied to us by the Spirit.  That does not mean we are helpless people though.  God has given us many means of cultivating and developing our faith and moral character.
