Biblical Wisdom in a Modern Proverb

The familiar proverb to "mind your own business" appears to be biblical. The apostle Paul told the Thessalonians: "mind your own affairs" (1 Thess. 4:11). Similarly, Peter tells us that meddlers bear the name Christian rather poorly (1 Pet. 4:15). And Solomon cautions us that it's a bad idea to "take a passing dog by the ears"—or, which is the same thing, to "meddle in a quarrel not your own" (Prov. 26:17).
