Matthew 7:6

Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.


Jesus warned His disciples not to give holy things to dogs or to cast pearls before swine. Under the Mosiac Law, dogs and swine were unclean animals and, here, both are used to depict wicked people. When we attempt to share the Gospel with vicious people and they respond with utter contempt, we are not obligated to continue to share the Gospel with them.
