Justice means minding one’s own business and not meddling with other men’s concerns. (Plato, Greek philosopher)

The term “social justice” is bandied around so much today. But, do we really know what it should mean? Although Plato’s comment is probably not all-encompassing, it does offer helpful counsel that can be applied to our individual relationships. How much embarrassment and difficult could be avoided if we remembered what Mom told us, “Mind your own business”?

Make it your goal to live a quiet life, minding your own business and working with your hands. (1 Thessalonians 4:11)
