On Self-Evalution and Casting Stones

When has someone jumped to a wrong conclusion about you? How did you feel? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1489).

One must start this question with oneself. Have I ever jumped to the wrong conclusion about others? The answer to this question is obvious and painful. Therefore, I must temper any sense of outrage at an unfair judgment of me by realizing that I have often done the same. And I use "often" advisedly. In this regard it is much like when I'm on the highway and see someone make a dumb traffic maneuver. Even though it might have resulted in a close call for me, I must ask myself immediately "Am I a perfect driver? Have I not also put others in jeopardy by a selfsame foolish action?" It is amazing how a little introspection can be a quieting balm to outraged anger.
