Now may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times in every way.  The Lord be with you all

2 Thessalonians 3:16


Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:  be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Matthew 10:16

Doves connect us to the days of Noah and the sign of Jonah (as Jonah means dove)  Also, the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus after He was baptized as a dove.

Wise (or shrewd) as a serpent is a principle about the technique of waling among wolve.  Avoid snares and do not stoop to deception.  Wise is the key word.

  • Don’t get caught in the enemies traps
  • Live in dove like innocence in good conscience before God
  • Live a pure and holy life
  • Act in compassion (Matthew 9:36)
  • Deny carnal desires
  • Strive to be gentle without compromise
  • Be sacrificial without being taken advantage of.
  • Take the high road.

1 Peter 2:12  Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles that whereas they speak against you as evildoers they may be your good works which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.
