The Window Through Which We Look

The Window Through Which We Look

A young couple moves into a new neighbourhood.
The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young
woman sees her neighbour hanging 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 neighbour 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.

It is easy for us to discuss other people, their lives & things that really doesn’t even concern us and we tend to forget –
our windows may not be that clean after all!!
