fiery snakes

And the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people.
Numbers 21:7

when grumbling takes
over our hearts
and rebellion makes
souls forget God

sinning is easily done
by complaining
and consequences come
from the Lord again

worship is what's at stake
when we complain
God sends fiery snakes
to correct us in pain

repentance must be made
acknowledging our sin
then forgiveness comes in grace
when we look again to Him

As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up that whoever believes in Him may have eternal life.
John 3:14-15
