When it’s an issue of character, don’t be quick to believe the evidence. It may be convincing. The source may be reliable. The evidence may be convicting.
But wait. Give some time. Think it over. If possible, sit with the accused and hear their side of the story. Step into their shoes and try to see it from their perspective. Things look different from their shoes.
Read this old time favorite of mine: “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him” (Pro 18:17).
