Message of the Day from Pastor Chuck Blair of New Church LIVE. 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." This is a harsh turn from Jesus's last comedic message about the plank and the speck. And how could this actually tell us something about generosity?

Jesus isn't talking about us and them. It's all within us. The functional and dysfunctional. Inner self and outer self. It's about regenerating ourselves and finding a new will and goodness. If pearls are the pieces of Truth that we know to be good and useful, and offer it to the wrong thing within ourselves, of course it's going to be trampled. So maybe this passage is telling us to not feed the demons in ourselves the truth that is for our self-betterment.
