The enemies of enemies can sometimes act like friends.
Some Pharisees sought Jesus out, a warning to extend.
He knew what they were after (which was scare him out of town),
so called the king a fox before he quickly doubled down.
He knew these guys for who they were, and what their mission was.
But also knew his destiny, and went ahead because
the long-term end of his intent could not be left undone.
And blessed are all who follow and who in the Lord’s name come.
