    “My dear friends, don’t believe everything you hear. Carefully weigh and examine what people tell you. Not everyone who talks about God comes from God. There are a lot of lying preachers loose in the world.” ~ 1Jn 4:1

    Hebrews 5:12-14 is something I think about a lot in this regard: “For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

    The analogy to what physical and consistent exercise to to strengthen our physical muscles and bodies is one of the things that really stands out to me with regard to the concept of having discernment developed (“reason of use”) by continually using (exercising) it. Of course, without God’s help, this is impossible, but spiritual discernment is something I consciously and specifically pray for daily.
