Scripture and Prayer: Do Not Give What Is Holy To The Dogs Nor Cast Your Pearls Before Swine (Jolie)

Pigs, Hogs, Muddy, Farm Animals, Swine(JamesDeMers)

 

” ‘Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces'” (Matt. 7:6). “And he who rebukes a wicked man only harms himself. Do not correct a scoffer, lest he hate you” (Prov. 9:7-8).

 

Heavenly Father, this is such an important lesson we need to learn. How many of us have tried to share truths with unbelievers, or people who are backslidden / lukewarm, only to then be ridiculed or mocked? While people are still hardened or have an antichrist spirit (which means either against Christ or instead of Christ), it will do no good to keep trying to share God’s truths with them. All it will likely do is make the person more angry. They will crush and stop on the Gospel and then turn and possibly rip us apart (hopefully only verbally). May we remember that it’s not our job to save people or make them repent of their sins. We are the messengers. We can present Your truths to people, out of love for them and obedience to You, and then the rest is up to them. Lord God, please give us divine wisdom and discernment to know WHO to share with, and who not to share with. May we know how much to say, and what to not say – because it’s not time. May we find a balance between being bold, but also having grace and love and choosing our words carefully. May we recognize open doors to speak, but also see the closed doors and be quiet and pray instead. We want to share Your love with people, Lord God. And we thank You for providing opportunities! But please, by Your precious Holy Spirit, help us to say the right things to the right people, in the right timing and right circumstances. In Jesus’s mighty name, amen.
