Trapping foxes

Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love. Song of Sol. 2:15

Little offenses can added up over time and eventually damage our relationships with others. Tiny annoyances one after another can multiply until our loving attitudes turns sour. We can even interpret a string of disappointments as evidence that someone – maybe even God – doesn’t care about us. The enemy of love tries to eat away at our hearts, one little bite at a time, but God’s love is bigger than the mischief of all the little foxes.

Lord, help me to meet every little fox with Your patience, goodwill and grace.
