Do you know? Do you care?

But exhort one another each day, as long as it is called "today", that none of you may become hardened by sin's deception. . . Oh that today, you would listen as he speaks! Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion. (Psalm 95:7-8)  . . . And whom did He swear would never enter into His rest, except those who were disobedient? (Hebrews 3:13-19)

"Mind my own business" is not a mindset of the Christ-follower. We should be concerned with one another's soul. When we hear or see of someone we care about who has fallen into sin, we should care enough to seek them out . . . in love of course. We cannot say we love someone and love God and let another stumble.

 God is clear that if we continue in sin we are asking for trouble! James is very clear as well: 

If anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone turns him back, he should know that the one who turns a sinner back from his wandering path will save that persons soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. (James 5:19-20)

Understand these words my friends: if we truly love God and truly love people, we will not allow them to rot in their sin! It is worth the effort.
