Reserving judgments is a matter of infinite hope.
Nick likes to wait until all the information is in before forming his opinions. Until you come to a decision on someone, you can always hope you’ll find information that will cast them in a more positive light.
To quote Matthew 7:1-3:
Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged,
and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye
and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
