We Should Not Judge Others.

Post by Bsuds »

A young couple moved into a new house. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, the young woman saw her neighbor hanging the washing outside.

"That laundry is not very clean; she doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better soap powder. Her husband looked on, remaining silent.

Every time her neighbor hung her washing out to dry, the young woman made the same comments.

A month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, "Look, she’s finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this?"

The husband replied, "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 clarity of the window through which we look.

So don’t be too quick to judge others, especially if your perspective of life is clouded by anger, jealousy, negativity or unfulfilled desires.

I was hoping for a different punchline: the husband went over and did the laundry for the neighbour.

My take-away is that the husband knew all along that the windows were dirty but let his wife go on believing (erroneously) that something else was the issue. What took him so long to clean the windows?

Am I wrong to judge him? Is there more going on here that we don't know about, like, did he have a broken arm or something? =P

Is this question just code for "stop picking on the unvaxxed"? cause that's not going to happen.
