God’s Word is Valuable

by: Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

It is written in Proverbs 9:7-8, “Whoever corrects a mocker invites insults; whoever rebukes the wicked incurs abuse. Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you; rebuke the wise and they will love you (NIV).” For more explanation regarding this Bible Verses, let us read Matthew 7:6. 

“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 (Matthew 7:6, NIV).”

The first part of the verse which is “Do not give dogs what is sacred,” it means it is forbidden for the dogs to have something that is HOLY. Both  dogs and pigs were unclean animals according to the Mosaic law. Dogs  are not pets in those days. When Jesus spoke these words, all dogs in those  days are roaming scavengers. They usually traveled in packs, and  very dangerous. To call someone a “dog” in the first Century was the  lowest insult. Even up ’till now, it is still very disgusting to anyone being  called a “Dog.” The only thing worse than being name called a dog was a  “pig.” Under dietary laws given by God to Israel, the pig was a forbidden because it’s an unclean animal. It was common in the first Century for the  Jews to refer the Gentiles as swine because they consider them as  “Unclean.” 

Jesus didn’t try to calm mockers. He purposely offended them.  Jesus said, “do not throw your pearls to pigs” because a pig is dumb and ignorant  to understand what a pearl is worth or value (Matthew 7:6). Spiritual  dumbness has nothing to do with one’s I.Q. You can be a certified  genius, yet a dumb as a rock in spiritual matters like the Pigs who trample Valuable Pearls. There is a parallel thought at the end of the  verse in Matthew 7:6 that refers back to the dogs. What is this holy thing  that causes dogs to turn on you, and tear you to pieces ? The answer is, Do not try to give the Gospel to people who already rejected it. Jesus   spoke of religious leaders who were offended by what He said in  Matthew 15:14, “Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit (NIV).” This is an ultimate  conclusion to those who do not follow God’s Word. Don’t waste your  time preaching to those who obviously hardened their heart and sarcastic. 

“Spiritual  dumbness has nothing to do with one’s I.Q. You can be a certified  genius, yet a dumb as a rock in spiritual matters like the Pigs who trample Valuable Pearls.”

Pastor Isaias T. Songcuan Jr.

We need to state that the Bible compares the truth about the Kingdom  of God. Pearls are used to signify the doctrines of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. On the other hand, the Dogs signify the people who Reject,  oppose, and abuse God’s doctrine. The people who are hostile and wicked who loves to quarrel are like the growling and vicious dogs. Moreover, the Swine signify those who would trample commandments and principles of God underfoot. These are the people who have impurities in life, those  who are corrupt, polluted, profane, and obscene. Jesus uses dogs and pigs  as the “Representative” of those who would ridicule, reject, and  blaspheme the Gospel once it is presented and introduce to them. We  are not to expose the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those who have other  purpose and  return to their own evil ways. Repeatedly sharing the  Gospel of Jesus Christ with someone who continually rejects and ridicules Christ is like casting pearls before pigs. We can identify such people through  discernment which  is through the guidance of the Holy Spirit to all  Christians. 

Jesus showed us the difference between judgement and discernment. We  are not to be as too good to true as Judges, yet we must be able to discern  the pigs in order to avoid giving pearls before them. The  command was not to cast pearls before pigs. It does not mean we refrain or stop from  preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In  Significance, the instruction  of  our topic  in  Matthew 7:6 is the same that Jesus gave to His Apostles  when He said, “If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet (Matthew 10:14, NIV).” We are to share the Gospel but  when it  becomes apparent that the Gospel is not “Welcome,” we are to move  on. We are responsible to share the Good News. However, We are not “Responsible ” for people’s responses to the Good News. 

Jesus Instructions to His disciples on how to handle rejection was to go  elsewhere. There are people who need to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  They are willing and ready to hear it. Many people who are interested  in  the  Word of God. They want to know the truth which will set them free.  To  God  Be  The  Glory!
