What does it mean to throw pearls to pigs?

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.” Matthew 7:6

            Jesus drew a spiritual line between the holy and the unholy.  You wouldn’t take something so precious like pearls and toss them in the direction of a dirty unruly beast like a pig.  We must guard our holiness and righteousness, making sure it doesn’t get trampled on by worldliness.
