I woke up today with the words of Jesus in my head (I wish that happened more often!).
“I am sending you out as sheep among wolves. Therefore, be as wise as a serpent, and as innocent as a dove.”
What a vivid image! What protection might a lamb, surrounded by a herd of wolves, have?
Apparently, two. Wisdom and goodness.
No, three: that the eyes of the shepherd are upon it.
