But when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire, a viper came out because of the heat, and fastened on his hand. So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, "No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet justice does not allow to live." But he shook off the creature into the fire and suffered no harm. Acts 28:3-5 (NKJV)
Holy Spirit, preserve me from hasty condemnation of others.
And from there, when the brethren heard about us, they came to meet us as far as Appii Forum and Three Inns. When Paul saw them, he thanked God and took courage. Acts 28:15 (NKJV)
Thank you for the encouragement we receive from the brethren.

A word received: Lay your burdens at my feet. I will carry them for you.
