1 Peter 4:12-16
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you:…
"Come, hurry up!" said the second hand of a clock to the minute hand; "you'll never get round in time if you don't. See how fast I'm going," continued the fussy little monitor, as it fretted round on its pivot. "Come, hurry up!" said the minute to the hour hand, utterly oblivious of being addressed by the second hand. "If you don't be quick you'll never be in at the stroke of one." "Well, that's just what our young friend there has been saying to you." At this point the clock pealed forth the hour as the hour hand continued, "You see we're all in time — not one of us behind. You take my advice: Do your own work in your own way, and leave others alone." Moral — Mind your own business.
