Raising Your Girl to Offer Charitable Assumption

Does your girl wrestle with serious feelings of distrust? She just assumes the world is out to get her, that she’s being set up to fail. Does she go for the throat of anyone who crosses her, whether they really meant to or not? If so, she could use a lesson on charitable assumption.

Charitable assumption is the bedrock of any healthy understanding of the world around us. In other words, those who extend the benefit of the doubt rather than jumping to negative conclusions, they live happier, more grace-filled lives.

Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians instructs us: “Let all that you do be done with love.” That means all that day-to-day interaction, all that assuming, all that communicating (verbal and otherwise): do it with love.
