It’s none of your business

Job 36:17

But now you are laden with the judgment due the wicked; judgement and justice have taken hold of you.  NIV

So, here’s another reminder not to worry.  I found it in the New Living translation, which says, “But you are obsessed with whether the godless will be judged.  Don’t worry, judgment and justice will be upheld.” NLT

As I think about it, this verse ties to yesterday’s:  A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all. Psalm 34:19 NIV

There have certainly been times in my life when I’ve worried about the seeming unfairness of things.  At those times, when people that I knew were good and loving were undergoing hard knocks, and others (who were not so nice) were experiencing tremendous gain, I’ve been guilty of “being laden with the judgement due the wicked.”

The truth is, it’s none of my business.  My business is my life, my relationship to God and my ability to help others.

I continue to take comfort in Psalm 34:19.

That’s what I’ll think about today.

  1. This reminds me of a teaching that I heard on 2 Timothy 4:14. When we get hurt by someone, we don’t know if God is working to smooth off our rough edges or if the enemy is working to kill, steal, and destroy. So we pray, “Lord repay him according to his works [good or bad].”
