- A talk show host made a disparaging comment about a respected gospel group.
- Social media was flooded with rebukes–some mean and personal in nature.
- A call was made for “petty Christians” to join into the conversation.
- Webster’s dictionary defines “petty” as having undue an concern about trivial matters, especially in a spiteful way.
- Petty is another word for “busybody”, which is cautioned against in the Scriptures.
- Pettiness is not a badge of honor, rather something to be reproached.
Luke 10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.
10:40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
10:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
10:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters (1 Peter 4:15).
And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business… (I Thessalonians 4:11).
Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm (Proverbs 3:30).
He that passeth by, and meddleth with strife belonging not to him, is like one that taketh a dog by the ears (Proverbs 26:17).
If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men (Romans 12:17-18).
