Mind Your Own Business With Mike And Matt

If a situation concerns you or you have experienced something of a similar nature, then it’s time to stand up and to talk. Let everyone ascertain what it is, and where it is — and stick to it. Only taking care, that the temporal is not allowed to take the place of the spiritual, the earthly of the Heavenly. Everything should be kept in its own proper place — and as to where that is, the Scripture will inform us.

The best way to do this is to refocus the conversation on a big-picture issue rather than on a private one. For instance, if you’re at work, switch to discussing the business rather than a fellow employee’s personal business. Gossiping is inappropriate talk about others’ personal affairs. If you know people are gossiping or prone to gossip, the easiest solution is to keep your distance. For example, if you see two people getting into an altercation, it’s time to call the police, not to mind your own business. If a person is drunk and planning on driving, it’s fine to intervene and take their keys since they have great potential to do harm to themselves and others.

The backlash against chaos surfing came on quickly, as if The Wolf of Wall Street had been forced to drink a soothing bowl of milk.

There was wild talk of “unplugging” and fleeing offline.

Minding your own business doesn’t mean you need to stop talking; it just means that you need to be mindful of when and how you’re talking. If you find yourself involved in a conversation that involves gossip, you can powerfully communicate your objection by simply walking away. Give yourself an out, such as, “Sorry to interrupt; I’ve got work to do,” and excuse yourself from the situation. It’s natural to make judgements, so it’s important to be aware of and curb the downsides of that instinct. When it comes to minding your business, avoiding snap judgements means foregoing the assumption that you fully understand a situation.

You have long treated God with contempt, and have grieved his loving heart. He is reluctant to punish you — but if you persevere in sin — he must! His holy law, and every principle of his just government, require it.
