Monday Morning Quote: Benefit of Doubt

"Perhaps the greatest charity 
comes when we are kind to each other, 
when we don't judge or categorize someone else, 
when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt
 or remain quiet. 

Charity is accepting someone's differences, 
weaknesses, and shortcomings; 
having patience with someone who has let us down; 
or resisting the impulse to become offended 
when someone doesn't handle something 
the way we might have hoped. 

Charity is expecting the best of each other."

~Marvin J. Ashton
