“Take us the foxes, the little foxes that spoil the vines.” Song of Solomon 2:15
In the May 28 devotion we were reminded that the christian life is the life of a soldier and we are called to daily battle.
Today we are reminded that the battles most often fought are over the small things – the little foxes that spoil the vines.
While we are occasionally drawn into great spiritual struggles and battles, more commonly it’s the daily warfare against presumptuous sins that overcome us. It’s the overlooked battles that often determine the tone and tenor of our spiritual lives.
May God grant us grace today to exert as much force, energy and vigilance against the small sins as we do in our times of great temptation.
