[pastor’s advice]

[pastor’s advice]

Be as cunning as a snake, inoffensive as a dove.

Matthew 10:16, MSG

*Sigh* That was my pastor’s advice when I asked for prayers for tomorrow (Monday, work, war)…

It’s gonna be tough, I think. Or maybe over the weekend the gal understood that we were not against her… The reason for my wariness is that on Friday she attacked my admin manager and a friend. While I was already okay with her attacking me (fine, she’s of higher rank than me, and older – whatever), but when she aimed her anger and frustration at my friends, a mama-bear instinct ignited in me. I do not let anyone hurt those I care about.

And… that “inoffensive” or “humble” (as other Bible translations render it) part is hard. I don’t want to be inoffensive. She hurt my friend! Yet I know that my pastor (and Jesus, of course) is right. Wisdom and humility – two things I will really need tomorrow… and not just tomorrow.

Praying for y’all guys. If there’s any specific prayer request I can pray for, you can either leave a comment / send a direct message @zenichka on Twitter / or write me an e-mail 🙂

And just in case I don’t say this enough – you all are a HUMONGOUS blessing to me and I am so thankful for this online community, this little piece of Christian family. You guys rock!!!

And our God rules.
