Then Daniel responded with tact and discretion to Arioch, the captain of the king’s guard, who had gone out to execute the wise men of Babylon.
These qualities of mind and action are what must characterize the servant of God Almighty.
Tact and discretion.
Concise words uttered with respect and judgement.
A discerning mind that carefully weighs all elements of a situation, applies judgment judiciously and acts with courage.
This is the mind and manner of Christ. When He captivates our minds we become people of tact and discretion by His power and His influence. Our words are direct, intentional and precise. Our actions are carefully weighed and implemented with wisdom.
Father God, renew within me the Mind of Christ that you have graciously given.
