No context, just my recent experience

Today, once more, I was struck with this truth from Jesus:

Don't give to dogs what belongs to God. They will only turn and attack you. Don't throw pearls down in front of pigs. They will trample all over them. Mathew 7:6


Once more I must confess, This is most certainly true!

Will I EVER Learn?

Maybe what you were offering neither belonged to God nor was pearls. Who are you calling dogs or swine, exactly?

You are quoting scripture and obviously have been hurt. Men will disappoint you, but God will never let you down. God is clear to those who listen and continue to grow in the Word.
I believe He chose you to be one of his prophets and your love for God is deep. Not everyone finds Him in the same place. Let God worry about who is right and who is wrong. Just expect hurt will happen because we are all sinners, though we try. Always do your best wearing God's armour. We are all sinners! Our God is perfect. I thank God for your heart, your phophetic gift and the great teaching gift He has blessed upon you.

Without vision, people will define their own vision and the loudest voice will prevail.

Without strategy, people will do what they're most passionate about whether or not it helps the organization fulfill its mission.

Without clear communications, people will assume for themselves what's most important.

Without encouragement, people will gravitate to the first person who gives them attention when they need it.

Without leadership, people will follow the leader they choose or assume they're the leader.

When there's a void, it always gets filled.

btw-none of this is rocket science people...

Jrr, Sorry, don't buy it. Pearls are Pearls. And a dog or swine is according to this verse: One who when presented with what I or another might consider a pearl are "turn and attack" by the dog. And a swine according to this definition is one who "trample all over them"

That's the definition I see.

ANON 4, I wasn't hurt, just irritated that I had wasted my precious time and killed those electrons in my brain and in the computer to make a cogent argument that fell on canine/porcine ears.

Thanks for your kind words.
