Surrounded by wolves: Matthew 10.16

“I am sending you out like sheep surrounded by wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.”

Matthew 10.16

Jesus sent out the Twelve to preach to Israel. He warned them about opposition. He told them how they should deal with it.

Jesus’ words here applied to Matthew’s readers and to us today. Wisdom is need to meet resistance. We must never lower ourselves to the level of others. What “wolves” have you encountered?
