Sitting here wondering, thinking and asking myself what my post will be for this week and it clicked to me. Today I am going to talk about one of my pet peeves.
One of my pet peeves has always been someone meddling in other people’s business. it seems like lots of people can not stay away from other peoples business.
“One thing that makes me laugh is that most of the people who are guilty of what I call, “Being a busybody” claim that they are interfering in the business of others because they care”. Really?, seriously? are you sure that is the main reason why you are meddling in their business. Ask yourself this question, do you like it when people start talking about you behind your back?
To me when people start meddling it is because they want to get some more information about you so they have something to talk about with their friends and that is gossiping.
If you really cared you would be on your knees and praying out of concern, not pointing your fingers in judgement.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
Proverbs 26:17 Whoever meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears.
Matthew 7:1-5 “Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
Humans are curious creatures and other peoples business sometimes tend to be of interest to us. There is also the fact that sometimes you mean to help because you care and you drag yourself in to be of help. Other times it is because some people like gossip and what better way than by entering the situation.
Proverbs 11:13 people who tell secret about others cannot be trusted. Those who can be trusted keep quiet.

Great post Bianca. I had to let go an old friend because of this issue. It was hard but once trust has been broken it is hard to repair. Life lesson learned
Thanks Myesha. That’s good. Yes once trust is broken it is hard to get it back.
