What does God say about pearls?
Matthew 7:6 “ Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” NOTE: Truth is precious, Jesus is preciouswe must not unwittingly expose ourselves to people violently opposed to the gospel.
