THE IMPORTANCE OF DISCERNMENT
IT FEELS GOOD TO HAVE THE FINAL WORD in an argument, but that sense of satisfaction doesn't last long. Usually, everyone involved ends of feeling bad. In such situations, meekness doesn't is possible only with self-control and discernment.
Yet living with meekness doesn't mean that we set aside boldness or action. Instead, it requires us to evaluate when to assert ourselves and when to trust. Jesus doesn't call us to be silent in the face of injustice. But perhaps He is calling us to understand when we should hold back on our opinions in order to genuinely hear someone. If we want healthy relationships, it's important to display meekness. This requires that we refrain from reacting too quickly and discern how to respond wisely.
