HE THAT PASSETH BY AND MEDDLE WITH STRIFE BELONGING NOT TO HIM, IS LIKE ONE THAT TAKETH A DOG BY THE EARS….
Ouch, that would hurt…..
Can you imagine the dog, turning on someone like that and biting them? Well the scripture is very clear here, that happens when we meddle in other peoples problems, that do not belong to us. Or at least meddling in strife.
It turns around and bites us back!!
So, the question is are you a meddler? Do you stick your nose, in other peoples business? Without being asked?….
The truth of the matter, is that many people, do not understand that this is wrong, and they stick their noses in other peoples business. They meddle. They get involved, and it makes the situation worse.
But, lets give some the benefit of the doubt, and let’s say, they could be well meaning, but it turns back and slaps them in the face. I have seen people do that, but their excuse is they want to be helpful. But it just seems to make things worse. How does one avoid that?
One always has to be aware of the strategies of the enemy. He wants you to be nosy. The enemies hand is in the strife to begin with, and so when you meddle, you are just adding fuel to the fire. How to diffuse strife? Well, lets see what the Bible says about that?
DRIVE OUT THE MOCKER, AND OUT GOES STRIFE, QUARRELS AND INSULTS ARE ENDED. PROVERBS 22:10
So what can you do, if you want to be helpful, but you do not want to meddle, or at least be aware that you would be meddling? You want to help, but you know this scripture is telling us not to meddle. So what would any well meaning Christian do?
Pray….The Bible tells us to pray. And yes, ask God for wisdom. Ask God, to show you how to get the “mocker” out, and wait for God to answer you. He will show you. For God tells us, IF ANY OF YOU LACK WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY AND UPBRAIDETH NOT, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN TO HIM. JAMES 1:5
But, I just want to add here, don’t be a pawn of the enemy, and call someone up, and say, “Oh I just want to pray for someone, and you name the person, but what you really are doing is gossiping.” Because that is also a form of meddling. Using something holy, by the pretense, of gossiping, is just not good. And there you are meddling, sticking your nose, into another situation, and talking about someone. Pray! And remember, love covers a multitude of sins. So, be careful, not to expose someone, to be the reason of conversation.
Always check out your motive, whenever revealing anything. And if you really are not sure, ask God, for wisdom, and guidance, and love. Some things do need to be shared, but it does take wisdom. You just don’t want to be someone, who is not trustworthy, or someone, the devil, will use, to hurt someone.
We always have to know, our actions, or our words, will produce fruit. We reap, what we sow. Do we want to reap, someone meddling in our own lives?
Here is a precious scripture, I just happened, by the Holy spirit, to come across that is a prayer as well. And I think would be very appropriate to pray, in a time of trouble, and need.
OH LORD, BE GRACIOUS UNTO US, WE HAVE WAITED FOR THEE; BE THOU THEIR ARM EVERY MORNING, OUR SALVATION, ALSO IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE. ISAIAH 33:2.
So in conclusion, let us be mindful not to meddle, but if we care, and we want to help, let us go to God in prayer, lifting up the need, trusting God.
Asking God for protection. Asking God for wisdom….But being ever so careful ourselves, not to get caught up in meddling, and the strife, and mocking, for that matter…..
Or the dog could turn around and bite us. And I know we don’t want that.
Just my thoughts, and in his love…Praying for wisdom.
IT IS AN HONOR FOR A MAN TO CEASE FROM STRIFE: BUT EVERY FOOL WILL BE MEDDLING.
My Prayer of Hope….
Father, my Lord, I do ask for wisdom in any situation of trouble, help me to be careful not to meddle in other peoples business. Yet, Lord, if I can be someone who can help someone, let me go to you for wisdom, for guidance, for understanding, as to what to do. Lord, only you know the results of any situation, but I so need to remember, you in every situation, I could encounter. Lord, I do not want to be a meddler, so give me a heart to remember that, and to trust you. In Jesus name, Amen
