Mind Your Own Business Song
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.
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.

Parents, Christian parents, whatever you neglect, “mind your own business,” in reference to your children’s souls. Left unanswered in all of this is the question of what to be mindful of. But what do you do when one of them is trying to confide in you and the other one is screaming from the bedroom? You have to be mindful of your companion while simultaneously attempting to eat without spilling or choking—and I say you would be remiss if you failed to notice the sad-eyed busboy who is refilling the water glasses. Divided attention far predates the advent of smartphones and is intrinsic to many human activities, such as child-raising, cooking a large meal, and waiting on tables. Or take one of the most ancient human occupations—war—which is relevant because the mindfulness promoters are beginning to market their product to the U.S. military.
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.
