Things Aren’t Always What They Seem

Last week I took my friend Paul to the ER.
Read his post here.
This picture looks worse than it truly is.
It looks like blood has dripped down and onto his shoe, but in reality that’s paint.
The pad in the background, now that’s blood.
Because my wife looks at my blog, I won’t post the picture of the four stitches he got on his hand after a man-lift pinned him down.

This happens all the time. Assumptions can be made based off a picture, video, text message, Facebook post, tweet or any number of other things but it’s always better to trust and believe the best rather than assume the worst. What would happen if we all operated out of trust rather than suspicion?

Just some thoughts to chew on.
