The Window Through Which We Look


A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning,while eating their breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging washed clothes outside.
The laundry is not clean, she said.Perhaps she doesn't know how
to wash correctly. Her husband looked on but remained silent.
Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry, she would make the same comments.
About one month later,she 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?
Her 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.

  6. Beautiful my brother and friend. Our " eyes is the lamp of your body . When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body is full of darkness". God be with you always my friend and may the light of the lamp shines upon you everyday of your life.

  9. If I had to sum up my thoughts after reading this nice piece in one word it would be "Brilliant". This was my first reaction to this post. Thanks for sharing. It contains a very serious message (apart from what you explained in your post) -- we all need to look inwards before finding faults in others.

  11. Brilliant story and one which truly illuminates some life principles for us. It reminds me of a saying from the Bible about taking out a log from one's eye before removing the speck from a neighbour's eye. We should first identify our own faults and eradicate them first before looking at the frailties of others.

    Thanks for inspiring my day!
