We are not responsible for anyone else’s actions in life but our own. And that should keep us busy enough. (Mike Lee, American pastor)

When we describe someone as a “busybody,” we do not mean to compliment them. Such a person is always concerned about everyone’s business, often to the neglect of their own. Not only, as Lee says, do we have enough of our own stuff to keep us busy, but if we care for our business well, we may be in a position to help others in theirs.

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