Words of Comfort: Pearls & swine.


Esau gave up his precious birthright because of the cravings of his flesh. Those who make a profession of faith without having a humble heart (which the Law produces) have the experience described in 2 Pet. 2:22: “‘A dog returns to his own vomit,’ and ‘a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.’” This is the tragic result of casting pearls of the gospel of grace to the proud, or those whom the Bible calls “dogs” and “swine.”
