Have you been having a not so good of a day? People annoyed you. Things didn’t go your way? Well, here are some amusing food for your thoughts that can surely make you smile (hopefully) and make you self-reflect, too.
“Neighbor’s Dirty Laundry“
This couple moved in to a new neighborhood. One morning while they were eating breakfast, the lady looked out the window and saw her neighbor hanging the wash on the line to dry. She noticed the washed was so dirty and so dingy. She said to her husband, ” That neighbor doesn’t know how to wash. The clothes aren’t clean. She must have not even used detergent.” Week after week, she looked at this window and saw the clothes and made the comments about how dirty the laundry was. One morning, she looked out the window and the clothes were as clean and bright as could be. She couldn’t believe it. She called her husband in. She said, “Look! She finally learned how to wash. I wonder what happened.” The husband smiled and said, “Honey, I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.” 🤣🤣🤣
The problem wasn’t that the neighbor’s laundry was so dirty. The problem was the window the lady was looking out was not clean. Many times how dirty our neighbor’s clothes are, depends on how clean our window is.
The Scripture says, “To the pure, all things are pure.” If you are always finding faults, complaining about the traffic, critical of your spouse, may I suggest your window is dirty? The problem is not external, it’s internal. You are looking through a tainted filter. At some point, we have to look in the mirror and say maybe I’m the one that needs to change. Maybe I’ve developed a habit of seeing what’s wrong rather than what’s right. That’s why it’s so important every morning to put on this fresh new attitude. – A FRESH NEW ATTITUDE, Joel Osteen
