24 Hours a Day


Webster says that discernment is the ability to judge well.

But, true discernment means not only distinguishing the right from the wrong;

it means distinguishing the primary from the secondary,

the essential from the indifferent, and the

permanent from the temporary.

And, yes, it means distinguishing between the good and the better,

and even between the better and the best.

But Matt, let’s start with you

What is discernment to you and Why is discernment important in recovery?

What are some of the consequences of bad discernment when you were in recovery?

What would you do different?

How do you judge something as good for you or bad for you?

What recovery tools do you use in this process?

Can you judge something as good or bad by yourself?

How does a sponsor or someone else help in this process?

How do you know when something is right for you?

How do you know when something is bad for you?

Bill from New Jersey

Sometimes we are faced with the decision between two good things.  This is where the rubber meets the road.

How does judging well affect your life?

  • less fear?

  • more confidence?

  • better sobriety?

  • more freedom?

How does your higher power influence your discernment process?

What would you say to the new guy who is struggling to know what is right for him?
