When Paul and crew shipwrecked, they washed ashore. Paul helped gather wood for a fire, and a snake latched itself on his hand. The natives of the island thought it was karma, that Paul was a murderer and was being judged. But Paul shook off the snake into the fire and was unharmed — Acts 28:5.
This miracle teaches us what we should do when we are bitten — by disappointments, by hurtful words, by unfair treatment.
Just shake it off.
Don’t let it bother you. Move on, forgive, forget. Don’t let the poison fill your body with death.
