Assigning Motives

Assuming the worst about others’ motives hurts.

Of course I am speaking as one who has done it and has been hurt by it as well, so I am not saying I am any better.

Two quotes I really like that often speak to cases like these:

“Don’t judge a man by where he is, because you don’t know how far he has come” – C.S. Lewis

There is way too much “I thank God I’m not like that Pharisee” in our online discourse. Not enough “I’m the chief of sinners.” – Daniel Darling

Let us reconsider our thoughts and words if they don’t build each another up.
