“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)
Our innocence doesn’t exempt us from our duty. We are being called forth into the world, into what may appear to be opposition, limitation, misunderstanding, accusation, and distrust. It may feel like we are consciously setting ourselves up for trouble, for a furious fight against a real enemy.
But Jesus admonished us to do our duty, expressing the very nature of God that is ours to claim naturally, freely, and powerfully. We reflect the qualities of Mind in that we are wise in our innocence. We are not naïve, and yet we are pure. We are unadulterated in our worship, in our conscious awareness of God, Spirit, as the only power and the power that we earnestly love.
Our sweetness, our innocence from mortal lies and that barrage of time and fear, makes us prime warriors against evil. We simply cannot believe it. We do not let it move us, concern us, chase us away. Instead, we discern the error for what it is, so clearly wrong in the pure water of our understanding, and go forth fearlessly, with the harmless, yet healing power of Love. We are sharp as the serpent, and yet we bear peace on our wings, just like the dove.
