"Do not give to dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn and attack you." ESV
We are cautioned as Christians about sharing the deeper, more precious truths of the Kingdom of God with those who are incapable of respecting and appreciating their priceless value. These people will mock it, twist it, and use it in a profane way in an attempt to tear down our testimony. If we merely share the powerful, but simple Gospel of Jesus Christ with them, their hearts will be convicted. If they accept it, they will grow in Christ and begin to understand the deeper things of God.
Heavenly Father, we stand guilty before You because we have made attempts to let others know how learned we are in Your Word and the Truth of Your kingdom. Forgive us Lord. We realize how unproductive that is. Prompt us by Your Holy Spirit to speak the Gospel message that will penetrate the hearts and lives of all who hear, and bring a great harvest for Your kingdom. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
