pearls-to-pigs_dfg

Using pigs as a metaphor, Jesus teaches that we should not waste time sharing the gospel with those who will only ridicule and reject it. While we are called to spread the good news of Jesus Christ, we must recognize when it is not being received and move on to those who are open to hearing it. Our role is to present the message, but it is up to individuals to accept or reject it. Just as pigs do not value pearls, some people may not appreciate the significance of Jesus’ sacrifice, and it is more productive to focus on those who are willing to receive the message.

Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. –¬†Matthew 7:6
