“…To be successful, in any endeavor, we MUST be wise as a serpent and gentle as a lam…”

??????????Matthew 10:16 tells us: Be wise as a serpent and gentle as a lamb.  How can this apply to everyday career, family…and God?  The conditions are the same, no matter where you try to apply them.  As employers, or even leaders; we, like the Apostles are going about hazardous work, meeting enemies as fierce and savage as wolves. Commerce is eaten up with such blood sucking culprits; always trying to defeat us at all costs; just as satan.  To be successful, in any endeavor, we MUST be wise as a serpent and gentle as a lamb…. In order to survive; all who will live Godly in Christ shall meet with sufferings, so commonly found in Christ’s ambassadors, who encountered the deepest of trials…. Only one dying a natural death.  Great leaders and CEO’s come and go, too often, victims of the system …that is…success at all costs.  We must be smarter than our enemies and counterparts.  Be wise and faithful ….as, in the business world…it’s hard to find both in the same person.  There are many, the wise, but fewer are both wise and faithful.  God expects us to be BOTH, as does the marriage contract.  Remember the saying…it’s easier to drive a camel through the eye of a needle….my own favorite is: thank you for looking through the “eye-of-the-needle.”  While this might be difficult to achieve… it’s also common to a committed, and faithful believer.  Do not be fearful, though, as we are created by God, in His Image; so, the makin’s are there for success, in all that we do.  Blessings…cjlb… 3/11/14
