I’m sure most of you reading this have heard of Jesus’ saying, “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine.” Matthew 7:6 I’ve seen this concept applied broadly in the context of many different situations. One of the problems in the application of this verse, is that there are entirely too many people classified a pigs and too many things classified as pearls. All too often, the definition of pigs and pearls leads perilously to inconsistent practice. And so, a few questions:
1. What’s a pearl? Give an example.
2. Who’s a pig? Again, Give an Example.
3. Does the application of this verse mean that we can never share the things of God with unbelievers?
