Can You Hear Me ?



A man was having difficulty communicating with his wife and concluded that she was becoming hard of hearing. So he decided to conduct a test without her knowing about it.

One evening he sat in a chair on the far side of the room. Her back was to him and she could not see him. Very quietly he whispered, "Can you hear me'?" There was no response.

Moving a little closer, he asked again. "Can you hear me now'?" Still no reply.

Quietly he edged closer and whispered the same words. but still no answer.

Finally he moved right in behind her chair and said, "Can you hear me now'?" To his surprise and chagrin she responded with irritation in her voice. "For the fourth time, yes!" What a warning to us about judging!

Most of us criticize others to cover up for the same faults in our own lives. We also tend to find fault with someone Mien in tact sae are the ones in the wrong, not the other person.
Jesus knew human nature well. That's why He said, "Judge not, and you shall not be indeed." -RWD

The faults I see in others' lives
Are often true of me;
So help me, Lord, to recognize
My own hypocrisy


IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR FAULTS TO CORRECT, TRY LOOKING IN A MIRROR
