The Woodman and the Serpent

"Aesop Fables"

ONE wintry day a Woodman was tramping home from his work when he saw something black lying on the snow. When he came closer he saw it was a Serpent to all appearance dead. But he took it up and put it in his bosom to warm while he hurried home. As soon as he got indoors he put the Serpent down on the hearth before the fire.

“NO GRATITUDE FROM THE WICKED.”

Maybe people are just too innocent and think that showing pity to evil is kind as well. But it's often not, it is committing suicide occasionally. Just like serpant and scorpion, evil is its nature.

Luke 4:5-8

The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world.

So if you worship me, it will all be yours."
Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.'"
