There are often 2 sides to a story.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten in trouble for making judgments after hearing one side and then finding out after what the other side looks like.
Unfortunately, we don’t have both perpectives when we hear a story, accusation or issue right away.
Reserving judgments will probably be the best course of action until both sides are heard.
As Aesop would say, “
Every truth has two sides; it is as well to look at both, before we commit ourselves to either.”
I think there’s wisdom in that.
Proverbs 18:17 (WEB) says, “He who pleads his cause first seems right; until another comes and questions him.”
