STORY: Dirty Laundry.

  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.”
