Often times you’ll hear,
“- and I loved her with every fiber in me- how could she treat me this way-!”
“- you can’t imagine some of the things I did for him- only for him to go and do that to me!”
“- I gave the company everything I had – how could they fire me???”
“- he cheated!”
“- he lied!”
“- she lied!”
Casting pearls before swine.
“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.” Matthew 7:6 NLT
Dear Queen, in your preparation towards your God given assignments you should be wary of situations or persons that do not recognise your value or worth even if it’s placed before them.
Casting your pearls before swine.
Although the pearls which I purchased from Primark years ago are obviously fake pearls, I couldn’t help but to reflect on Jesus’ words, ‘Pearls before swine.”
Why would he say that?
He knew that often times we can present something of value to persons, situations or even institutions and yet, they just do not recognise the worth. Imagine handing over a set of pearls to pigs? Do you honestly think they will recognise its value? Will they not just snort it away?? Or just trample it under their feet in their haste to play in the mud?
Now QEP does not mean to imply that the institution that rejected you or the ex (ahem) that used your heart as a soccer ball are swine yet-
I believe Jesus is showing you that not everyone nor everything sees your worth and value and in such cases it’s best to stay away! Lest they trample them under their feet and turn and tear you to pieces!
Take a look at Haman in the Book of Esther! He failed to see the value in the Jews of his time and was determined like Hitler to annhilate them all! When Esther learnt of this, she didn’t hang around in hopes that he will change his mind yet rather she sort to rid all Jews of him!
So wipe those tears, Queen! Chin up! You have fistfuls of worth and value even if someone refuses to see it!
You can grow into a better version of yourself, Queen. Swine are not permitted to get to you.
Jesus loves you and I do Too,
Queens in Christ,
