A Proofreader–How We Need One!

Error overlooked

In proofing my work, my mind sometimes plays tricks on me so that what I see is what I meant to write, not what I actually wrote.


On a moral level, this too can happen: aware of others’ shortcomings; blind to our own.

Error exposed

Like a mirror, the Scriptures reveal how God sees us—so we can make needed changes (James 1:22-25; Revelation 3:14-22).

In writing, I want to find my mistakes so I can correct them. But what about my life? Am I as motivated to discover my failures and correct them?

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way” (Psalm 139:23-24–emphasis added).
