A young couple moved into a new neighborhood.Â The next morning whileÂ they were eating breakfast, the young woman watched her neighborÂ hanging wash outside.
“That laundry is not very clean,” she said.Â “She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs betterÂ laundry soap.”
Her husband looked on, but remained silent.
Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, the young womanÂ would make the same comments.
About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice cleanÂ wash on the line and said to her husband,
“Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.I wonder who taught herÂ this.”
The husband said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned ourÂ windows.”
And so it is with life.Â What we see when watching others may depend onÂ the purity of the window through which we look.
