Jumping to Conclusions

It’s good to jump. A jump shot is great for basketball. A jump rope gets the heart pumping. Hurdle jumping keeps you limber. Jumping to conclusions; however, is not ideal. Have you jumped to conclusions, only to be wrong? I was reminded of this recently. People hear something, quickly gather their opinion, and act like it is the gospel truth. Not only that, they post it online, and if you disagree, you are in the wrong. We are quick to speak and slow to hear. James 1:19 tells us to be “Quick to hear and slow to speak.” Gather the facts. Understand all perspectives. See the big picture. It is better to take your time and be right, then jump to conclusions and be wrong.
