In 2 Peter 1:3 the apostle Peter tells us that God has “given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness”, meaning that in God’s word we can find principles to guide us in every area of life. This includes our personal relationships. While it is quite true that we are to be concerned with our fellow man and especially our brothers and sisters in Christ, we cannot use this as license to meddle in other people’s business uninvited. In 1 Peter 4:15 the apostle Peter wrote, “But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evil-doer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters.” Many would think that being just a bit “nosy” or meddling just a little in the affairs of others is no big deal but look at the list in which Peter includes the busybody. To Peter, being a busybody is on par with being a murderer, thief, or evil-doer. Is that the company we would like to be compared with? In 2 Thessalonians 3:11 and 1 Timothy 5:13 the apostle Paul also warns about those who apparently don’t have enough of their own business to worry about and go about meddling in the business of others. ”For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies.” (2 Thes. 3:11). We should always show love and concern for others but before we meddle in their business let them invite us to do so.
