Joash Stay In Your Lane

Joash Stay In Your Lane

When Amaziah, king of Judah, wanted to meet face to face with Joash, king of Israel, he was warned to stay at home and not “meddle” in some thing that would just bring him harm. Good advice from an evil king.

Mind your own business, don’t seek to meddle in what is not your own.

But the King of kings gives us the same advice even today. By inspiration the apostle Paul instructed that Christians should “aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands”) 1 Thessalonians 4:11. When he wrote his second letter to the church at Thessalonica he said, “We hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies” (2 Thessalonians 3:1).

Seems like mankind has always had this problem. WE tell our children all the time that “it’s none of your business” or “ Mind your own business.” However, where do you think they learn to meddle? Let each of us concentrate on our own business. We will be more productive and less apt to bring harm upon ourselves.
