The Wife And The Window

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next

morning, while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her

neighbor hang the wash outside.

That laundry is not very clean, she said, she doesn't

know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.

Her husband looked on, but remained silent. Every time her

neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young woman would make the

same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a

nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: "Look! She has

learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this."

The husband said: "I got up early this morning and

cleaned our windows!"

And so it is with life:

"What we see when watching

others depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

Before we give

any criticism, it might be a good idea to check our state of

mind and ask ourselves if we are ready to see the good rather than to be

looking for something in the person we are about to judge. "
