Don'T Throw Pearls To Pigs

5 Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam from thine eye, and thou shalt see clearly to cast out the mote from thy brother's eye. 6 Ye should not give the holy thing to dogs neither should ye cast your pearls before swine, lest they tread them down with their feet, and having turned, should rend yon. 7 Ask, and it shall be given you. Seek, and ye shall find. Knock, and it shall be opened to you.
