Context Readings

Don'T Throw Pearls To Pigs

5 Hypocrite! First cast the beam out of your own eye, and then you shall see clearly to cast the splinter out of your brother's eye. 6 Do not give that which is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and tear you. 7 Ask and it shall be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you.
