A young couple moved into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw 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 window through which we look.

Okay, so this was a terrific short story I received from a relative through email and am borrowing for this installment. I have no idea who to give credit for this, but it made me think about my own life, and how I can be so judgmental toward others. My prayer is that I clean my own windows, and make sure that I maintain them as well. This is where the Holy Spirit comes in (well, ONE of the many places He comes in) to bring revelation and lead us into healing and maturity.

Thanks for reading. Now go check your windows. ;-)
