Make it your ambition to lead a quite life: you should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you.
1 Thessalonians 4:11 (NIV)
On Tuesday, February 6, 2018, I told a classmate a little too much of my business while I was telling her she got carried away. I felt attack and judge by her what I should have said to her is mind your business and keep it moving end of discussion. I felt bad telling her my business after I have realized what I did I apologize that was my fault I will continue to never tell anybody my business I do a good job minding own my business and not telling nobody else but there are times that I do tell it from that I start to getting in trouble getting mad at people that want to give their advice about it. That is one of the areas I come up short in I need to do better in that area of not telling people my business. You know, we live in a social media world where anybody can tell their business thinking someone would care nobody won’t they won’t understand it especially if they haven’t experienced the situation before. They are not going to help you and most of all, it doesn’t concern them. When a person sees another person business on social media they give their advice takes it and runs with it while they are running with it they get it twisted from there it’s a problem. To keep that from happening is don’t say anything about it or don’t put it up on social media that’s where the quote comes in that says silence is golden (Carlyle, 1831) from that they won’t have anything to say. Who you need to tell your business to is the Lord because he is the only person that can work it out and he is the only person you need to tell it to here are 4 reasons we need to mind our own business and leaving other people business alone.
1. They didn’t ask for your advice.
If they wanted your advice on how to handle a situation they would have asked you other than that, back away.
2. You don’t know the situation.
If you don’t know the situation don’t talk about it because you don’t know the reason behind that situation that it is happening. You just looking on the outside you are not on the inside.
3. It doesn’t concern you.
If that person is in a situation that they are experiencing, you don’t know anything about it you don’t understand it you never experienced it and you don’t know that person either back away or if you do know that person still, back away it doesn’t concern you.
4. Don’t gossip
Once a person tells their business to another person they tell it to everybody else they misinterpret the words from what the original person has said from that it is gossip. If it comes to say you say I don’t know anything about it or just to get away from it say I have to go it is not good to gossip about anybody business especially if it not yours. You wouldn’t want your business to be the topic of discussion if it turns to be gossip.
I made up a metaphor after a woman that I know got into my business it describes minding your own business it goes like this. Why don’t you pay attention what’s happening in your own backyard than looking over the fence at mines.
