1 Peter 4:15

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

Did anybody else read that list and wonder how being a busybody ended up in a list with murder, theft, and evil-doing? What exactly is a busybody? It is someone who is busy in the body. Peter makes it clear here that we are not to treat church like a subscription to People magazine and use it as a time to gossip about others or get into other people's matters.

Busybodies will buzz around the church saying, "Did you hear about so and so?" Busybodies can deeply hurt the church, they can make people feel that they are not good enough, unwelcome, or unloved. As Christians, we need to be careful not to be busybodies, but instead, we are to outdo one another in love. Let us be Christians who lift one another up in prayer, not to gossip, but to build one another up.

For the King,

Daniel Batistelli
