I’ve experienced how great it is to give my time and effort to others. It actually can be really restful for me to give something that I love to someone else. But why does giving to others sometimes feels so great, and other times it feels so draining? The Lord knew we would have a problem with that too, so lets examine some scriptures that have helped me:
“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.” Matthew 7:6
When I first read this verse I thought Jesus’ words were awfully strong. He wasn’t one to mince words or make them sound politically correct. I read this a few years back when I was dealing with a difficult situation. But what in the world was Jesus talking about?
