Lovely little Mary was holding two apples with both hands. Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: "Mary, my sweet, darling girl, could you give your mum one of your two apples?"
Mary looked up at her mum for a few seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite of one apple, and then quickly of the other.
Her mum felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then Mary handed one of her bitten apples to her mum,and said: "Mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one".
No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement. Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.
