Have you noticed in your past experience that your kind interpretations were almost always truer than your harsh ones? (Lawrence G. Lovasik, 20th century clergyman)

Many of us are guilty of jumping to conclusions. We see or hear a bit of news, and we immediately think we have enough knowledge to either commend or condemn what we’ve heard without further investigation. Our judgments are premature and too often they prove to be wrong. What a tragedy to judge someone wrongly. Be careful before you make the next jump!

Get the truth and never sell it; also get wisdom, discipline, and good judgment (Proverbs 23:23).

Look beneath the surface so you can judge correctly (John 7:24).
