What Does Jesus Mean When He Says, “Do Not Throw Your Pearls Before Pigs”?

Episode 1028 Show Notes 

From the Show

Think about having precious jewels, it would be foolish to cast them before pigs. Similarly, when we think about the teaching of the holy gospel, Jesus is saying, don’t just cast that out to anyone. Some will trample it and reject it, so there must be discernment as we think about ministering with it.
