Dont just pretend that you love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically. (Romans 12:9-11 NLT)
I hate typos. Unfortunately, they are part of my fallen world. In any kind of printing and publishing enterprise, especially one with regular and demanding deadlines, they are an unwanted reality. Most of the time, typos are just irritating. Occasionally they are embarrassing. Sometimes, however, they are touches of grace and point to a deeper truth.
In a recent Heartlight article entitled Love Its a Compound We Can See, one of our readers found a typo she loved. (Ive highlighted the typo because a lot of people miss it the first time they read it!)
While most of us would be in serious trouble if we called our wedding anniversary a weeding anniversary, Bobbies point is well taken. In every relationship, there are weeds that take root and start to grow. So often through neglect or just plain laziness, we let them spread. Sooner or later, a real stress comes along and we find out that all those weeds have choked out what was once a vital and beautiful relationship.
Pull the weeds out now!
Make good areas healthy!
Most marriages could use a weeding anniversary out with the old and a re-commitment to the good. So maybe this typo wasnt a problem, just a reminder. But in the spirit of weeding, we corrected the typo anyway! How about you, got any weeding you need to do?
