don't jump

I watched this mini-series on Net Flix recently.
 It is a re-telling of the Pride and Prejudice story.
 He's proud, she's prejudiced. He has a troubled
past that has hardened him and
 she judges his actions without knowing the whole story.
She has a secret that she cannot share for fear of endangering
someone in her family. Then, he judges her actions
 without knowing the whole story!
They both jumped to incorrect conclusions.

How often do I do that?
Make a presumption about someone or something
without knowing the truth.
It is so easy to do...and so wrong to do!
Reputations can be ruined, relationships damaged,
 lives wrecked.

The movie ended happily...they forgave and forgot.
 But life doesn't always go so perfectly.

 Phil. 4:8 says:
"... you’ll do best by filling your minds and
 meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic,
 compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst;
 the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse."
 The Message Bible

Think the best, assume the best, expect the best...an excellent way to 
see others and avoid the "jump to judge"!


  1. good words Miss Debbie! Daughter and I enjoyed watching North & South...

  2. Such a good reminder...to think the best of others.

  3. Great lesson that I have to learn and re-learn all the time! Thanks for speaking this truth! And what a platform to preach from too. North and South is one of my favorites! I love the two actors that play the lead parts and the ending is simply wonderful!
