Learn to say “it’s none of my business”

Do not judge and criticize and condemn others, so that you may not be judged and criticized and condemned yourselves. –Matthew 7:1

Thousands of things we encounter every day are neither right nor wrong but are simple personal choices–choices that people have a right to make on their own without outside interference.

The devil stays very busy assigning demons to place judgmental, critical thoughts in people’s minds. I can remember when it was entertaining for me to sin in the park or the shipping mall and simply watch all the people go by as I formed a mental opinion of each of them–their clothing, hairstyles, companions and so on.

But the Bible says it’s wrong to judge people this way. We cannot always prevent ourselves from having opinions and there’s nothing wrong with that, but the moment we think there’s something wrong with other people because they don’t share our personal preference, we have a problem with judging others. In these situations, I think to myself, Joyce, it’s non of your business.

Don’t let harmful judgements from in you. Instead, realize that God made everyone different and it’s okay for people to think differently. And when necessary, think to yourself, This is none of my business.
