This is an attribute that is sadly missing today. To be shrewd does not signify that a person is mean. But that they have discernment to use those things that are at their disposal wisely. Whether it be possessions, money or even the gifts that God has given them. For we are accountable to the throne of Grace to be wise and prudent about their use. We have been entrusted with them.
Children and Grandchildren are a gift to us. Any Parent will tell you that the wisdom of Solomon is required here!. A shrewd Parent or Grandparent are a blessing to any family. As a Grandparent I can tell you that you also need the shrewdness of a diplomat! and the patience of Job!.
Discernment is to be astute and grasp hold of what the Holy Spirit is saying to us and to use shrewdness in doing it. After all there is nobody more shrewd than he is, spot on is the word for him. As a preacher I have seen too many burn out”s because the Holy Spirit was not listened to and self came in. Believe me, been there and worn the tee shirt.
Mathew 25. v14-28 Clearly defines that our Lord Jesus will hold us to task if we have talents and do not use them or at the other end of the scale to waste them. He looks for Shrewdness!.
