Martin continued trying to remember what exactly Missy had told him. Oh yes. Be sly as a serpent and interfere like a dove. It didn't sound right at the time, but he knew there was something in the Bible about serpents and doves.

The above quote is from the novel, Boo, by Rene Gutteridge... and I've been giggling about it since my wife read it to me (the quote, not the novel - I'm not THAT much of a slug) this weekend. In at least a couple of churches I've served in, I'm pretty sure "Missy" was advising some of the folks in power.

Oh, by the way, the reference is Matthew 10:16.
