In 1 Kings 3:5-9, we read
5 In Gibeon the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.
6 And Solomon said, Thou hast shewed unto Thy servant David my father great mercy, according as he walked before Thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with Thee; and Thou hast kept for him this great kindness, that Thou hast given him a son to sit on his throne, as it is this day.
7 And now, O Lord my God, thou hast made Thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.
8 And Thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude.
9 Give therefore Thy servant an understanding heart to judge Thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this Thy so great a people?
For us to choose to do good, we must first be able to discern and recognize what is good versus what is evil. This text in God's Holy Word hints to the fact that if we have to discern between good and evil, it must mean that sometimes they can look like one and the same thing. For this reason was the Holy Spirit sent to us, "to guide us into all truth". Why? Because without Him, we cannot know truth.
