Dont entangle yourself in unnecessary issues


2Tim 2:4 ISV “No one serving in the military gets mixed up in civilian matters, for his aim is to please his commanding officer.”

A person serving in a military doesn’t get mixed up in civilian affairs. A Pastor or leader should have a focus on his calling and should not mix up with some unimportant issues which can not help him nor the community in any way.

Pastor Daniel Walusa. Dont be concerned by irrelevant issues.

An employee working in an organization should not get mixed with unnecessary issues such as gossips about other people’s marital problems, their HIV status and other non value adding issues.

A business person should not be carried away with affairs of life and forget their business. Students should not be carried by some unimportant issues. For example knowing how many ladies are pregnant on campus or how many men have been rebuffed within a semester will not have any benefit on you in the next ten years.

Learn to concentrate on important issues only and never poke your nose in every affairs. Check if what you are doing or involved in has any benefit on you, or anybody now or in future. Learn to bear in mind the business God has assigned you to do and to finish it because one day you will be required to present a report on your assigned business.

1Thes 4:11 “Also, make it your goal to live quietly, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we instructed you.” Then verse 12 tells us the benefits for doing that.

1Thes4:12 BBE “That you may be respected by those who are outside, and may have need of nothing.” If you want to command respect and succeed, then do what the scripture says.

Add another scripture below. You should never be busy interfering with other people’s affairs when you know you will not change anything for better. For example some people are busy discussing other people’s marital problems when they know they can neither solve them nor give any suggested solutions. This is work of idle people. Stop it!! 2 Thessalonians 3:11-13 “We hear that some of you are living in idleness. You are not busy working —you are busy interfering in other people’s lives! We order and encourage such people by the Lord Jesus, the Messiah, to do their work quietly and to earn their own living. Brothers, do not get tired of doing what is right.”

Prayer: Thank you Father for your Word that you have given me. From today on I will not be entangled with civilian affairs that will not benefit anything on my life. I will always stick to your Word and your assignment. In Jesus Name.Amen.Prayer and Counselling +265888326247
