Hanging Out Laundry – May 10

Two young guys moved into an apartment they were renting while going to university. The next morning while they were eating breakfast, they saw their neighbor hanging the wash outside. “That laundry is dirty,” one said to the other. “Our neighbor does not even know how to wash clothes. They both laughed. Every time their neighbor would hang his wash to dry, these two guys would spend their time talking about him. A couple of weeks later, one of the guys was surprised to see nice clean wash on the line and said to his roomate, “Look, our neighbor has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught him this?” The other roomate said, “When I got up this morning I spent some time cleaning our windows. I believe I found the problem with his laundry. And so it is with life. Often times, what we see in others, should be telling of what we need to address ourselves. Jesus said in Matthew 7:3 “Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?”
