What Is That To Thee? (reposted)

Busy Bodying in Other Men’s Matters

1 Peter 4:15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or [as] a thief, or [as] an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters.

A busybody in other men’s matters. Was Eve content after eating the fruit without busy bodying herself into the mind of her husband? She was a busybody into another man’s matters. Here we have a testimony to help us understand this principle:

Each should diligently and interestedly attend to his own work, leaving others to their own Master, to stand or fall. There are too many busybodies in —–, too many who are interested in watching their brethren, and for this reason are constantly weak. They will bear testimony in meeting, and because they have not Jesus in their hearts to confess, they will try to impress upon their brethren their duty. {2T 245.3}
