A busybody is a nosy, meddling person, who's very interested in what other people say and do. If you're a busybody, you can't help offering advice to friends, whether they want it or not. Busybodies are known for trying to help with situations in which they're not necessarily welcome or needed. The Bible says that busyness leads to doubt and a spiritual disconnection from God. In Psalm 46:10 there is a direct link between being still and knowing that God truly is God. If we are too busy for God, our stillness before the Lord will vanish, along with our peace. EZEKIEL 18:20In the Bible Verse Meaning The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. PROVERBS 25:23In the Bible Verse Meaning 23 The north wind driveth away rain: so doth an angry countenance a backbiting tongue. Our bodies are devoted to the glory of God as instruments of service to him, not for our own wishes (1Corinthians 6:19-20). Anything that is an abuse and contrary to the wellbeing of our bodies is wrong. Overwork weakens and injures our bodies. Therefore overwork is not good.
