Pearls and pigs and couch potatoes

Re: Verse reading–Matthew 7:1-27 (day seven)

“Don’t throw your pearls before pigs. . . they will trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.”–v 6.

Danny got me thinking. (Panter)  He gave the devotional Wednesday night at prayer meeting.

Jesus’ words of caution (Danny said) implied an EXPECTATION of actual practice.  People who are not giving the gospel away don’t need to be careful about how they do it.

It’s a fine line, I guess.  Give the truth of Christ to unconverted hearts and they may trample it. Flood the church with worldly values–tear it to pieces.

The other extreme is just as dangerous.  Become critical of the lost world, convince yourself that they won’t listen and you will eventually stop sharing.

Be careful as you give this gift away.  But, NOT so careful that you don’t do it.

(Sorry, Danny, if this is not what you said.  Like I said, you got me thinking.)
