Judgment vs. Discernment

ann-h-kimQ: What is the difference between Judgment and discernment?

A:  I think that with judgment, there is a resistance to seeing the whole picture. It’s a reaction from a limited point of view… Discernment is open to more points of view, and is a response from having received all available data… The same line or boundary can be drawn, but discernment is responsive whereas judgement is reactive…

When something is taken just at face value, important information can be overlooked.  Discernment includes understanding, which is knowing the why, and takes into account the bigger picture.  ~Annie H. Kim
