Correction

grammarLast week I noticed that a comic strip I read daily had two common grammatical errors. Later that day, I read a different newspaper that carries the same comic strip. Glancing at the caption, I noticed that there were no grammatical errors. A proofreader had caught the mistakes and corrected them.

Sometimes I think leaders in churches and families are like editors or proofreaders. We correct mistakes that we see. This is not to say that you should be anxious to point out every trivial mistake that someone makes. However, the big mistakes that people make can lead to a lot of pain and suffering in their lives. In those cases, someone needs to step in and correct mistaken ideas.

“Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.”–2 Timothy 4:2.
