The HOLY SCRIPTURE is multi-dimensional. It's TRUTH applies equally to those giving and to those receiving. It brings transparency to all of our intentions to what we and others consider HOLY. Matthew 7:6, "Do not give dogs what is HOLY, and do not throw your pearls before pigs..." Followers of CHRIST are to be merciful, forgiving, and not judgmental, (Matthew 7:1-5), yet we are to wisely discern the character of people. Do all of our efforts honor GOD? Is our precious time with GOD interrupted by those who do not perceive the value of the Gospel? Do we sacrifice time with our family (a HOLY Institution), our health (a Gift of GOD) by working long hours to satisfy the immediate "wants" of others? Do we respond to others from "guilt" (thinking we are not Christian if we don't help) or in TRUTH, giving to those who give Glory to GOD for the Blessings they receive? Our efforts are to always (in All Ways) bring Glory to GOD. In everything we do, we are to PRAY, ASK AND DISCERN. Then we won't THROW AWAY OUR PEARLS.
