Little Foxes

Song of Solomon 2:15 says,
"Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes."

A fox, in search of food, would go into the grape orchards and eat the grapes. You may think that this would spoil the crop. Maybe so, but those were the big foxes. The small or little foxes, also hungry, would come into the orchards but being small could not reach the grapes. Instead, they would chew on the base of the vines thus killing the whole vine. Instead of the farmer simply losing one crop, he would lose the whole vine.

Understand that spiritually some things we do or allow, how little or insignificant, can also be disastrous.

Interesting the meaning of disastrous: having extremely unfortunate or dire consequences; bringing ruin.

What are your little foxes? Don't allow them to bring to ruin your walk, witness, life, etc. for Christ.
