Jumping to Conclusions Hurts

This fellow seems rather earnest in his opinion:

Jumping to conclusions usually hurts someone ... either the person jumping or the one jumped on or both!

Why bother trying to understand others? After all, it’s easier to rest in your assumptions. Not wise, but easier:

Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions. (Proverbs 18:2 NIV.)

And besides, once you’ve heard one side of a story is there really any reason to spend time listening to the other side?

The first to put forth his case seems right, until someone else steps forward and cross-examines him. (Proverbs 18:17 ISV.)

OK, maybe our pirate friend up there is right. No sense anyone getting hurt.

Jumping to conclusions is not allowed.

    Your post proves again how timely, relevant, and helpful the Proverbs are! I’m glad they’re in the Bible.
