Pearls before swine

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

Good and honourable words from the Bible, Matthew 7:6.

In other words, don't hand over those most precious gifts - your children - to those who do not appreciate them, who seek to treat them like pieces of meat to be measured, who will stamp all over their spirits and their lives and their freedom.

You are the protectors of the gifts from life.

You will stand before them to answer for your treatment of them. Let their lips speak of your guardianship of them. Let their eyes praise you for your help and defense of their freedom.

We have a moment upon the beauty of this most magnificent earth.

Don't throw away the precious gifts to be trampled by the ignorance and rancour of careless men and women who would wound and destroy in the name of safeguarding.

Honour your holy visitors from beyond time. Give them the strength to become everything that they will be, those most brilliant gems.

Cherish them. Love them and protect them as they polish their skills and their souls.

Oh, cherish them, beloved.

Then, let them go to shine forever.

  1. I want to incorporate this into a tattoo. I was sexually abused as a child and I think the pearls before swine fits well and I find it beautiful.
