Those Little Foxes!

“Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.” (Song of Solomon 2:15)

Another word for “take” is “catch”. In other words, therefore, “Catch us the little foxes”.

The little foxes refer to the small things in our lives. Believe it or not but what will prevent most believers from making it past the pearly gates are not the so-called big sins like adultery, stealing, murder, drunkenness and the like. Most Christian believers do not engage in these things, either through the grace of God, or through major effort on their part.

What will prevent most believers from entering into the Kingdom of heaven are the small things or sins in our lives. These are the kind of things that believers tend to ignore in their lives. To many it’s no big deal walking about with anger, pride, unforgivingness or even lust in our hearts! But these things should sound a very loud alarm in us. We should rush to Jesus and repent!

Notice the scripture says the little foxes destroy the vine,

“for our vines have tender grapes”.

The things of the Kingdom are extremely tender and they can be easily destroyed by the seemingly small things in our lives Actually, seen in the proper light, these things are not small at all. On the contrary, they are deadly.

Unfortunately, on Judgement Day many believers will be counted with the raw sinners of this world. Jesus will tell them, “I never knew you”. This is because they harbored things in their hearts that destroyed the vine.

We should repent of these things. We should repent of the deep, hidden things in us for it is these that “spoil the vine”.

I have heard believers boasting about how they no longer sin – meaning they no longer fornicate, etc. But what about the pride and prejudice and bitterness and every whatnot, the things that reside deep in us?

We cannot boast until we have quieted each and every one of our enemies on every side. And that requires a constant crucifixion of the flesh each and every day of our lives.

One thought on “Those Little Foxes!

  1. “I am not come to send peace, but a sword.” We must walk in HIS light without ceasing, exposing the foxes to his eyes of fire.

    ‘And God divided the light from the darkness.’ To him alone belongs the knowledge of good and evil.
