Davidisms - Believe the Best in Others Until Proven Otherwise

Imagine how different the world would be if we all chose to believe the best in each other. Today’s culture often leads people to engage others with a pointed finger. Finding fault. Looking for the worst. Condemning. Accusing. Blaming. But the richest friendships are between people who believe the best in each other. Who realize their friend is flawed, but choose to accept and step over the flaws. Recognizing no one is perfect. Including themselves.

Or perhaps they have been unfaithful to us in some way. Yes, prudence is important. But until a friend proves to be unreliable, believe the best in that person! These are the richest friendships in life. We all need friends. Someone who sticks closer than a brother (Prov. 18:24). That’s why we choose to believe the best in others. Until proven otherwise.
