Matthew 7: 6
Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
i understand grace and mercy but i also understand this scripture to be saying that we as Christians need to be cautious about what and to whom we share things with.
i have seen a lot of us giving away the holy things the Father has given us and then be torn down, the Lord gives you a vision of what He has for you, or wants you to do, this is a holy gift from God, and we turn around and tell someone, and then they discourage you by telling you either how hard or impossible or impractical you are being, and are allowed to steal the holy blessing the Father has planned for us.
i have seen this both in and out of the church. And there are those that we share the Lord with and they then use your words to draw the life out of you; like people that do come to church and bible studies. They use the Christian language to suck up to you to get favor with a Christian or Christian group, they use the holy words of God to consume the time of the Christian and wear them down spiritually, and in turn this .tears down the holiness God has placed in us. i don't quite know how to say what i seem to know deep down inside, but i have seen Christians torn down and completely worn out by people. then, (they call it witness to them) to the point they don't have the energy to do the things the Lord has given them to do. When the Lord gives someone to you to witness to i believe it is not only a joy to the one doing the witnessing but refreshing and up lifting to our souls, not a tearing down of the one doing the witnessing.
