Dogs and Hogs
Today’s power scripture comes from Matthew 7: 6 (AMP)“Do not give that which is holy (the sacred thing) to the dogs, and do not throw your pearls before hogs, lest they trample upon them with their feet and turn and tear you in pieces.
As conscientious believers and caring Christians, when confronted with people struggling to overcome issues we are motivated to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to often pray for and with them. When we see a need and we have the ability, we seek avenues to help address the problems. If someone is hungry we try to feed them. When families have been displaced by tragedies like floods or fires, we open our homes to provide shelter and comfort. We have even been known to open our wallets and share our resources with others in need. All of these are great examples of living an unselfish, caring and altruistic life; but there are times when we must be weary of the trappings of putting our best out to those who have ulterior motives.
Not every begging hand or crying eye is attached to an appreciative heart. Not every sad tale is based in the truth. We must rely upon the Holy Spirit to give us discernment about how to share our resources, time and talent. The devil is crafty and will use all methods to distract and pillage our abilities to get the work done that God has ordained for us to do. Everything has a purpose and everyone has a journey. Even good deeds, if not a part of God’s plan or path for us are a distraction. Be good to one another, but don’t be fooled. You cannot save the world. Jesus has already claimed the position of Savior of the world.
Every day is a good day it is up to us to make it a GREAT power-filled day. Be blessed! Dr. JoAnn
