“Tend To Your Own Knitting” (or MYOB)

Read these words this morning during my time of “coffee with the Lord”…

“Why do you judge your brother or sister? Why do you treat them with contempt? … Each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.” (from Romans 14.10-12)…

Then decided to check out how the Message paraphrase puts it…

“So where does that leave you when you criticize a brother? And where does that leave you when you condescend to a sister? I’d say it leaves you looking pretty silly — or worse. Eventually, we’re all going to end up kneeling side by side in the place of judgment, facing God. Your critical and condescending ways aren’t going to improve your position there one bit… SO TEND TO YOUR OWN KNITTING. You’ve got your hands full just taking care of your own life before God.”

“Nuff said!” Goin’ to “tend to my own knitting” (or as I heard it growing up… “MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!) 😉
