The Perspective of Life

A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman watched her neighbor hanging wash outside.

“That laundry is not very clean”, she said. “She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps, she needs better laundry soup.”

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 in this morning and cleaned our windows.”

And so it is with life. What we see when watching others may depend on the purity window (eye) through which we look.

Moral : Criticizing others is easy but a self-analysis is difficult. Before condemning others, we should look at our own perspective.
