A new neighbor moved in across from a young husband and wife. On the second morning, when they were eating breakfast, the young wife saw that the new neighbors were outside washing their clothes.
The wife said to the husband: “Those clothes haven’t been washed clean, perhaps the neighbor doesn’t know how to how clean them. Perhaps she needs better washing powder.”
The husband looked at his wife, and [sat] silent without speaking.
And so every time the neighbors washed their clothes, the wife would always comment in this way. About a month later, the young wife discovered to her surprise, an item of clean clothing was hung on the neighbors washing line, and she called loudly to her husband: “Quick, look! She learned how to wash clothes. I’d like to know who taught her this?”
Her husband, however, answered: “I got up early today, and washed the glass [on our windows].”
Before we make judgements, first we should look to see if our own “windows” are clean.
