The Pig and The Pearl

The Pig and The Pearl

Maybe the most misunderstood, one of the most misapplied verses in the entire Bible is the verse we’re going to look at this week. It’s Matthew 7:6 where Jesus says in the Sermon on the Mount, “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.” As we do the work of interpreting what Jesus meant by this, we will discover Jesus is getting to a deep problem in human relationships. He’s giving wisdom that could save your friendships, your marriage, or your relationship with your kids. This Sunday we continue to learn from Jesus.
