'Pearls before swine.' (Matthew 7:6)
For the Jewish Society of Jesus' day, pigs had no redeeming features. They were unclean. Holy things, says Jesus, are worthy of respect by those who give and receive them. Pearls are precious and not to be trampled into the mud. When people treat our beliefs with contempt, we are to be gracious and dignified, but also to stand up for what we believe.
Lord, when our faith is mocked, we ask you to strengthen us so that your word will not be ignored or ridiculed. Amen.
