@whitesand – I agree with you wholeheartedly! So many people don’t appreciate what they have. I think we fill our lives up with so many to-do lists that we sometimes forget to slow down long enough to express gratitude for what we’ve accomplished.
Also, I agree with the line in the article that states any new translations could have a frosty reception. I understand pearls before swine as meaning “lack in understanding of the good news (Gospel)”, but it has changed somewhat over the past 2000 years. I’ve heard it used in reference to receiving payment for a job well done, no work no pay.
