Do Not Throw Pearls Before Swine

"Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces." (Bible, Matthew 7:6).
Often, a little bit awkward I felt while saying it. It was an uneasy feeling to judge another person calling him unworthy etc. But many events have clearly demonstrated to me that the judgment is inevitable. Moreover, if unsure and hesitant, but I opened at least a small part of what is considered sacred for me to unworthy person, the punishment came immediately. And I'm so grateful for that. It turns out so the criticism is inevitable because we must know people, else we will make great mistakes. All depends on what we judge and why. It is simply recognized by the motives of the people. What the holy thing or the pearls means? They are the things which are sacred and precious for us, and which natural feeling teaches us to be careful not to waste or expose to desecration. Unfortunately, some people are not able to evaluate it according to their nature. There are such people, unhappily, and for no good can come of comradeship with them. They will not eat the sacred prasada offered to them like a pig will not eat the pearls, but in addition, they will be trampled it in the mud not realizing its true value. And then we have a responsibility themselves. Simply but true.
