"Little Things"

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

Watch out for "little foxes", they are what spoils the vine. It's those little things that give us the most trouble and can cause the most damage. It doesn't always have to be something "big".

One little nail can cause a flat tire and keep you from going anywhere. One drop of poison can kill you. One piece of rotten meat can contaminate the whole plate. One small cut can develop into an infection that can make you very ill. A single sting from a bee can put some in the hospital. A spider bite can kill you if it is from a poisonous spider. Little termites can destroy a house. 

Likewise, one wrong move, one evil thought, one glance in the wrong direction, one bad choice, one wound from a friend, one unkind word can steal, kill and destroy our lives. So we must be on guard and guard against even the smallest things.

If a mouse gets into your house it can cause a lot of destruction. And it can get in through the smallest of openings. All it needs is enough room to get its nose in and then it can squeeze its entire body in through it. Close all "small openings" by casting down that thought, by releasing that offense, by getting that hurt healed... just don't give place to those small foxes and those "little" pitfalls the devil has laid for you.

Have a great day. Watch out today for those "little" things that have the ability to destroy.
