Mind Your Own Business
I was scrambling this week to come up with a topic I wanted to share. Normally I have an idea of what I want to write about during the week. This week I didn't...until a Facebook post by Mikkita Moore woke my brain up.
She was speaking on people all in other people's business. First having something to say about how people spend their stimulus check and then the Kirk Franklin topic. I am usually tardy to the party, so I didn't know what was going on with Kirk Franklin and his family except that he cursed his son out.
So I googled to see what was going on. I only listened to a little bit because I was not interested in it and I don't believe that Kirk owed us an apology. Who are we? Yea, I said it. We put people on these pedestals that we have created and when they fall, because who can live up to all those expectations, then we think we are owed something.
Why should he apologize to you? Who are you? What he does in his house with his son is his business. We have it twisted. HIs disrespectful, entitled son should be apologizing for trying to capitalize on his father's fame. That's how I feel. I have a family member like that. All of his problems are the cause of someone else, if you let him tell it. But enough of that.
It always amazes me when I hear people have an opinion on what other people are doing. What other people are saying. How other people are acting or reacting. My question is what do you have to do with it? If it is not directly affecting you in any way, then shut up.
Mind your own business. Take care of your house. Check for what your man is doing. Handle your own children.
But oh no. I often hear people talking about things that are not their business. They are forever judging other people. And sadly, sometimes some of the more vocal people are "church" people. They are quick to judge on another person's actions and claim they are speaking in love. No you're not. You're speaking from your heart and mind and using God and the Bible.
I have had "church people" say certain things to me and about me...all in the name of being a good Christian. Yet, I also heard those same people cursing and dogging someone out. Sorry you can't put on and take off your Christianity like a cape.
I am not saying all Church people are that way. I am saying some people judge and then use the Bible to make it right. So why did I even bring up church people. Because I heard that the were so "Saint's" are outraged that Kirk was cursing his son. Really?
But, let me get back to my original thought. If more people minded their business, the world would be a better place. Really it would. If people stopped pointing their bony finger at what somebody else is doing that they don't approve of, things would just run so much smoother.
Why are you worried about what people spend THEIR stimulus check on? Why are you all up in Kirk Franklin's house? Maybe if more of you demanded more respect from your disrespectful children, your life would be easier, better. Heck I don't know. What I do know is that what goes on in Kirk Franklin's house, my house, your house is his, mine, and your business.
Let's stop judging what we don't know or understand. Let's be so involved in our own business that we don't have time to be in other people's business.
How bout that? (Nope I didn't forget the "a") That's how I wanted to say it
