|Stay out of conflict.|
It amazes me how some people will tell me their side of a story, their perspective, and want me to form an opinion.
How can I do that when I only know 50% of the story?
Even before I came into Christ, I was not that person who automatically took a side. You've heard it before, there are 3 sides to a story, person A's side, person B's side, and the truth. Most of us want people to take our side of an issue, but at whose and what expense?
When we think of great courtroom judges, what do they do during a conflict between two people? They usually listen intently to both sides and not interject their opinion one way or another until they have heard all the evidence from both sides. They will only render their professional, unbiased judgment after the facts.
So here's the key: they're the judge, not us.
So why even entertain the story in the first place? Yet if we must come to a conclusion because of extenuating circumstances, then getting both sides of the story is crucial. There's usually more to the story than what's presented before us.
