The Thought For Today is a repeat and will be back to normal next Friday
'If you judge people, you have no time to love them.' ~Mother Teresa
Two Buddhist monks on their way to the monastery found an exceedingly beautiful woman at the river bank. Like them, she wished to cross the river, but the water was too high. So one of the monks lifted her on his back and carried her across. The fellow monk was thoroughly scandalized. For two full hours he berated him on his negligence in keeping the holy rule: Had he forgotten that he was a monk? How dare he chat her up and actually carry her across the river? And what would people say? Had he not brought their holy religion into disrepute? And so on and so forth. The offending monk patiently listened to the never ending sermon. Finally, he broke in with, "Brother, I dropped the woman at the river. Are you still carrying her?"
