STOP AND THINK – When you can’t mind your own business, be sure to mind your tongue. (Kenneth J. Brown, author)

We all know that we should mind our own business, but sometimes that’s hard to do. We think that our opinion or judgment is needed, so we offer it in spite of fearing we shouldn’t get involved. Brown’s reminder, however, ought to make us think twice before we offer opinions that aren’t asked for. Doing so might save us from a lot of embarrassment.

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands (1 Thessalonians 4:11).
