“I found your nose! It was in my business again!” I laughed when I saw that quote online but to be honest, it is definitely true. There is no better place for us to keep our nose other than in our own business. Tending to the affairs of others serves us no good. It brings about confusion, frustration and let’s not forget – it brings about TROUBLE. This tending can involve family, friends, other loved ones or even people we hardly know anything about. Some of us may find ourselves tending to the affairs of others out of pure nosiness. It’s a case of “we just want to know.” It’s a case of “we just need to have something to talk about.” And nosiness will definitely land us in a sea of trouble. Some of us may find ourselves tending to the affairs of others out of true concern. But that tending may not be not be viewed as a “concern” to others and unfortunately, that is something that we must accept. We cannot offer concern where it is rejected.The best thing to do in this case is just leave it in God’s hands. Yes, it hurts but it’s not your business. Then there is the case of tending to the affairs of others out is insecurity. The case of wanting to know to secure doubt , assumptions or heresay. You have to find security within yourself somehow because you won’t find it tending to other people’s business. If anything, we may find out things to make us feel more insecure. Sometimes we have to let it go. We have someone who sees and knows all and His name is God. We cannot control what others say and do. But we can control our nose from snooping to see what they say and do. If it is something going on that will harm us, we already know that God has it taken care of. If we are simply being nosy, we need to stop and delegate that time to tending our own. If we are concerned but wasn’t invited to care, then we must give it to God who has all power to help anybody. -S.L.M.
