the window through which we look

A young couple moves into a
new neighborhood.
The next morning while they
are eating breakfast,
the young woman sees her
neighbor 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 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. Isn't this a good one?!
