Good advice on giving advice

“I can recall many times in my life when I gave “good advice” to someone, only to realize very quickly how little I had known of the situation. Many times that advice exploded in my face and damaged the lives of others. Those mistakes were regrettable. I have had to learn to offer advice only if I knew the whole story and understood the motives and values of those with whom I was talking.”

(David Thurman – ‘Jesus and Legalists’, Gospel Minutes, Vol. 66, Number 36, September 8, 2017, Page 1, Paragraph 1)
