Pearls and Pigs!
Cast not that which is holy unto the dogs,
neither cast ye your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them under their feet,
and turn again and rend you.”
— Matthew 7:6

The word dog - “kunan” the equivalent to wild, vicious, untrained, dirty dogs who were know to feed on the garbage heaps of that day. (The Word dog Jesus used of the Syrophoenician woman was a different Greek word)

Cast - to throw or to cast, with purpose and aim.

Pearls - very costly, valuable, hard to acquire.

Swine - big, fat, lazy, they like the slop.  But  come time to eat get out of their way, they’ll trample you down like you weren’t there.

Many times we share things, reveal things, open up to others about what  qo has revealed to us about Himself and or other things in our lives.  We leave ourselves in an exposed place, opening doors to hurt, and or betrayal. Here Jesus sternly warns for us to be mindful and careful not to do that with certain others. That’s why it’s important to be aligned with like minded people. It’s important to know what your sharing and to whom. Guarding your heart also involves keeping a watch over your lips.

I love you all very much!(NLM)
