I’ve recently been asked to be proofreader for a ministry page. If you know me or have read my posts for any length of time you might find this ironic.
I can be an editor’s nightmare.
You would think I could catch my own typo’s, incorrect punctuation and fix my funky half sentences. But I can’t see them for myself. I’m oblivious. I can read something over and over and miss the mistake.
Now, give me someone else’s stuff and the rough spots stand out like they’ve been strung with Christmas lights, highlighted with a hot pink sharpie or lifted off the page like braille.
Isn’t that just the way it is?
That’s what the verse in Matthew 7:3-4 speaks to. We can see the error in someone else but we’re delusional about our own.
That’s when the finger-pointing begins.
May we ask God for discernment and a keen eye to see our own mess-ups without always looking to point the finger at someone else.
Making Mondays less mundane with a word from the Word.
Looking forward, pressing on and seeking God in every bump and twist in the road.
