Wrong assumptions lead to faulty conclusions. As the saying goes, “when you assume, you make an Ass out of U and Me.”
We tend to make assumptions about everything, especially as it pertains to people. That’s why it’s critical to engage in a little fact-finding before concluding. Don’t automatically assume that someone’s motives are wrong, even if it initially draws suspicion.
Assuming the worse about the intentions of another can cause you to overlook the good they may bring into your life. Healthy skepticism is not wrong in itself, but exercising wisdom goes a lot further.
