Wise Purity

"I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. So be wise as serpents and harmless as doves".

Christians often find it easy to be one or the other, but seldom both.  Without innocence, shrewdness become manipulative; without shrewdness, innocence becomes naivety.Though we face different crises and different problems to those of the first disciples, we still need that finely balanced character, reflecting so remarkably that of Jesus Himself.

- N.T. Wright
