Application of the Fighter Verse for October 16/17

Track 26 in Songs Set E – Matthew 7:6 Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you.

Do not waste what is holy on people who are unholy.  God calls us to discernment.

(1 Corinthians 6:3 – Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life!)

If you put what is of most value, namely God and His word, before those who do not love God, then they will turn and attack you.    It is a stern reminder to my heart to exercise care, by the power of the Spirit, in how I speak with others.

How do you recognize a dog or a pig?  How then do you speak to them?

Practical suggestions this week:

– Pray this verse and for discernment.

– Search out the Bible and consider how you can recognize a pig or a dog.  (See Pr 9:7, Pr 9:8, Pr 23:9,)

– Uphold the exceeding value of Jesus Christ.  What is the value of a pearl? (See Mt 13:45-46)

How will you use this verse in your life this week? with your spouse? your children? your family? your neighbors?
