Lessons Learned as a Juror Part I - Integrity Moments - May 18

Lessons Learned as a Juror Part I

Recently, I learned several lessons as I spent three days as a juror. The first lesson is how differently people can view the same set of facts.

The defendant had run a red light, then crashed into the plaintiff’s car. The plaintiff’s car was “totaled,” and, she racked up $107,000 in emergency room and subsequent medical bills.

Her request for repayment seemed reasonable and credible to me. It turns out that I was an outlier. The jury only awarded her $17,600 and two jurors refused to pay anything.

In 1 Kings 3:9 Solomon asked, “So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil.”

In business, we make many judgment calls. In those moments do your part by asking God for discernment.
