"Mind Your Own Business"


John 21 20 22

John 21:20-22

"Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, 'Lord, who is going to betray you?')

When Peter saw him, he asked, 'Lord, what about him?'

Jesus answered, 'If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.'"


I peter 4 15

I Peter 4:15

"If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler.“

"Let none of you suffer as a . . . busybody in other men's matters." (KJV)


Mind your own business

When God confronted Cain after the murder of his brother, Abel, Cain asked, "Am my by brother's keeper?"

Without a doubt, if God had answered this question, it would have been a resounding "Yes, you are; you are your brother's keeper."


Philippians 2 4

Philippians 2:4

"Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others."


Galatians 6 1 5

Galatians 6:1-5

"Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else, for each one should carry his own load."

1. Paul appeals to those who are mature (spiritual); they are urged to seek to restore the person who is caught in sin.

2. When Paul says, "If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing. . ." he's pointing a finger at those who think of themselves as being spiritual, and therefore qualified to talk about other people's sins.

3. Each one of us should evaluate our own lives, but certainly not by comparing ourselves with others.


Mind your own business

In the conversation Jesus had with Peter, it came about because Peter was concerned with what would happen to his fellow disciple, John.


Mind your own business

Jesus immediately added, "You must follow me." "Mind your own business." What is that business? "Follow me."


Luke 9 22 23

Luke 9:22-23

"If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me."


Mind your own business

  • There's only one way to be a Christian - carry the cross.

  • There's no such thing as a cross-less Christian.


Mind your own business

We also remember that Jesus also taught us to pray, "Give us this day our daily bread." There is "daily" sustenance available to those who take up the cross "daily."


Day by day lina sandell

"Day By Day" Lina Sandell

Day by day and with each passing moment,

Strength I find to meet my trials here;

Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment,

I've no cause for worry or for fear.

He whose heart is kind beyond all measure,

Give unto each day what He deems best;

Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,

Mingling toil with peace and rest.


Day by day lina sandell1

"Day By Day" Lina Sandell

Ev'ry day the Lord Himself is near me

With a special mercy for each hour;

All my cares He fain would bear and cheer me,

He whose name is Counselor and Pow'r.

The protection of His child and treasure,

Is a charge that on Himself He laid;

"As your days, your strength shall be in measure,"

This the pledge to me He made.


Day by day lina sandell2

"Day By Day" Lina Sandell

Help me then in ev'ry tribulation,

So to trust Your promises, O Lord;

That I lose not faith's sweet consolation,

Offered me within Your holy Word.

Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,

E'er to take, as from a Father's hand,

One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,

Till I reach the promised land.
