Matthew 10:16 ” Behold, I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore, be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.”

To be a Christian in the world today is to be like a lamb among the wolves.  We’re bombarded by carnality, violence, and deception everywhere we look.  This is why Jesus directed His disciples to go out into the world using practical common sense…and using wisdom to maintain a pure ethical character no matter who or what they encountered.   But nor were they to be gullible and naive in their worldly interactions.  As Believers, we too are called to a Godly influence in the world…but not be influenced and so seduced by it.
