Two Sides to Every Story - Prov.18.13,17

Prov.18.13 says, "He who answers before listening— that is his folly and his shame. And in V.17, "The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him."
I have been working with people in various ministries over the last 33 years since 1975. One thing I have seen and learned is that there are ALWAYS two sides to every story. ALWAYS. These two verses from Proverbs 18 have helped guide me in listening well before I make a "judgment" on any matter or any person. What about you? Do you answer before listening to the whole story? Do you listen to both sides of any story? There is great wisdom and discernment in this truth.
