Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves.
As believers, we are to affect mankind. Wisdom will allow us to navigate many different situations smartly, and innocence will render us blameless in the eyes of those that don’t know Christ. Jesus called out the Jewish Priests as hypocrites because they liked to be seen as holier-than-thou while not following their own man-made laws. These men were neither wise nor innocent. We are to be a light to the world!
