PEARLS BEFORE SWINE

This picture is silly to me, it really makes me laugh. It makes me wonder, would you ever let a wild hog or even a farmer’s pig play in a pile of your most expensive suits or roll around with all your finest jewelry? Probably not. These animals, although to some may be seen as cute, love to roll around in mud. Now there is nothing wrong with a little mud from Mother Nature, it’s just the fact of having your nice clothes & jewelry covered in mud that makes it sound dirty. Personally, I’m not materialistic & if you’re anything like me you might feel as though this might not apply to you. Think otherwise. I’m just using this piggy thing as a metaphor. Think of your time, your energy, your struggle, your pain, your love, your passion, your goals.. why would you want to share any of this with someone who can make those beautiful things seem wrong or dirty? Why put yourself in a predicament where any or all of those priceless things may be taken away from you?!?!? Sometimes we need to think of who we are surrounding ourselves with and/or what type of situations & predicaments we are putting ourselves through. Whoever/whatever they are… is it worth yourself?

(The following wise words were passed on to me from Marcel G. … thank you!)

“SHOULD WE WEAR OUR MOST EXPENSIVE OUTFIT TO A MUD FIGHT? WHY THEN DO WE CONTINUE TO PLACE OURSELVES IN JOBS, SITUATIONS, AND RELATIONSHIPS THAT RUIN OUR PEACE, HEALTH, & SELF-VALUE? SHOULD WE LEAVE OUR MOST VALUABLE POSSESSION UNGUARDED IN A PUBLIC LOCATION? WHY THEN DO WE PLACE OUR MINDS AND BODIES IN THE REACH OF THOSE PERSONS AND SITUATIONS WITH A DEMONSTRATED HISTORY OF ABUSE OR NEGLECT? WE ARE, TO OURSELVES, THE MOST VALUABLE POSSESSION WE HAVE. YET WE WASTE OUR TIME, ENERGY, & SOMETIMES OUR LIVES IN WORTHLESS SITUATIONS AMONG PEOPLE WHO ARE UNWORTHY. WE MUST VALUE OUR IDEAS, OUR ENERGY, OUR TIME, & OUR LIFE TO SUCH AN INFINITE DEGREE THAT WE BECOME UNWILLING TO WASTE WHO WE ARE. IF WE PUT ON OUR BEST & GO TO A MUD FIGHT, WE CAN EXPECT TO GET DIRTY. IF WE PLACE OUR HEAD IN THE LION’S MOUTH, WE SHOULD EXPECT TO GET EATEN. SAY THIS TO YOURSELF, I AM VERY VALUABLE TO ME.” -ANONYMOUS.

“Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy. Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.” -Matthew 7:6 (NLT)
