Hasty Judgments

It was a costly mistake: The trusting parents went for a brief walk, leaving their new baby in the care of their watchful pet dog. They returned to find the baby’s crib upside-down and empty, its blanket in scattered bloody shreds. The family’s pet—a previously tame and loyal pit-bull—innocently wagged its tail in welcome, unaware of the bloody evidence on its mouth and paws. Betrayed and outraged, the husband shot the dog dead. Soon after, in one dark corner of the room, he found their baby—alive, well, and without a scratch! And in another corner lay a dead wolf, its face pointing to the shattered glass window. CAUTION: Never rush to judgment! “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment” (John 7:24).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
