Purity Of The Window

Hello, I love the moral of this story, I think you will too.
Thanks for visiting,
Janet :)


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 to judge.

  1. I love this Janet and it's so very true. We need to remember this every time we are about to say something that's not very nice.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. Dear Janet, It is like to parable of casting the first stone. This is a beautiful lesson for life.
    Don't judge unless you are ready to be judged.
    Have a good Sunday dear friend. Blessings, Catherine xo

  4. Thank you so much Sandee, Catherine and Joyce, I'm so glad you all liked the story and what it represents :)

  5. Oh yes I love it...she so deserved it, I've met such women and they are insupportable. The lesson is very good indeed Janet :).

  6. Reminds me of the old saying; It's not what we see, it's what we think we see that matters. This story sums that up well. Thanks for the reminder.
