40 DAYS – Time with God – Day 22
Serpents and Doves
by Pat Baxter
God is calling us to be like vulnerable sheep among the wolves. How can sheep manage among the wolves? God knows that if we are as wise as serpents, we need to be able to wait and strike at the right moment and wriggle away quickly from trouble. God also knows that if we are as gentle as a dove, when living and sharing the Word, the people will want to listen to the Word and respond. This is our survival strategy as sheep among hungry wolves.
