Its my business!
What it usually means is: “Who are you to tell me how to mind my own business”
You hear it when you correct someone whom you feel is not minding his or her business the way you want it.
Of course, no one has the ‘right’ to interfere in someone else’s business! Are you God or something??
This made me wonder: What is God’s business?
Today morning in Goa I turned on e-sword and this verse popped right out into my heart:
GOD’s business is putting things right; he loves getting the lines straight, Setting us straight. Once we’re standing tall, we can look him straight in the eye.
That is an amazing God.
He is interested in my business.
His business is putting things right in my business!
I see two possible responses to this business thing:
I may wonder and give thanks, or I may resist Him, depending on my assumptions about this ‘God’.
If my idea of God is that He is all knowing, He is loving me unconditionally and accepts me for who I am, and desires the best for me, then I would obviously say ‘Wow, thank you Lord, for minding my business’
On the other hand, if I feel that I know best how to mind my own business, I will obviously resist with all my heart any attempt by anybody to tell me what to do, because in my own eyes, ‘I am god’
That’s why it is said that Theology [study of God] is at the beginning of wisdom, and indeed Theology can set your life and your business right.
I can witness to that fact everyday in my life, my marriage and my business. I can say that God has straightened out a lot of the knots that I had tied up, and is still in the business of straightening me out, and boy, am I glad! 🙂
My desire for you my dear reader, is that you can say this too, if you are not already 🙂
