Matthew 7: 3-5 illustrated

Today's crumb was offered by a faithful reader in Indianapolis, IN, USA. It's called "The Window from Which We Look."

A couple moved into new neighborhood and one morning, while 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 soap." Her husband looked on, but said nothing. Each time her neighbor hung wash out to dry, his wife made the same comments.

About a month later, his wife was surprised to see nice clean wash on the neighbor's line. "Look, she has learned how to wash correctly," she said. "I wonder who taught her?"

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 upon the purity of the window through which we look.
