Thomas Boston, Works, 2:50-51:

Beware of rash judging those that have any lineaments of Christ’s image upon them. Ye may judge and condemn the evil actions of the best of men, if ye be sure from the word that they are evil. But, O my soul! enter not into the secret of those who presumptuously take upon them to judge men’s state, hearts, and consciences, upon slips of human infirmity and weakness.

Reminds me Mathew of someone we both knew, and will see again.
Eric told me years ago and it has forever stuck with me "always put the best construction you can on someone". (naturally not an evil person) He was talking about when you see them and they act a certain way that makes you think the worst. "Maybe you caught them at a bad time, they were under stress, had some bad news or were not going through such a good time, we all can at times".

Brett, yes, he had a striking statement -- do not write men off as graceless. We were very blessed to have such a servant of God.
