Matthew 7:6

What does Jesus mean in Matthew 7:6 when he says, "Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs"?

God’s word is holy. It is precious—much more valuable than expensive gems and stones.

God’s will is that his people share his word with others.

The result of sharing God’s word is that some people believe it through the power of the Holy Spirit, while others reject it.

Sometimes people reject the holy and precious word of God vehemently and blasphemously. In such instances, we “do not give dogs what is sacred” and we “do not throw…pearls to pigs.”  We move on and share the word of God with others.
