I preached a sermon a few weeks back focused on being generous people this year, not just financially, but more particularly in the way we think, speak and act.
Then I was reminded of this great line from Napoleon:
“Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence.”
I laughed out loud (um, that would be LOL for you younger types)… such generosity of thought!
“Give people the benefit of the doubt. It’s more likely they’re just stupid, not mean.”
