The Little Things
May 11, 2016By Ed Wrather

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


The Message puts Song of Solomon 2:15 as: Then you must protect me from the foxes, foxes on the prowl, foxes who would like nothing better than to get into our flowering garden. 


The huge Hadron Collider which was built at a cost of $4.4 billion recently was shut down. It is thought that it will take several days to restart the collider which is located near the Swiss and French borders. The unplanned shutdown was the result of a weasel getting inside of a transformer and burning it out. Sadly, the weasel did not survive. In 2009, there was another unplanned shutdown of the collider believed to have been caused by a bird, although no traces of the bird remained. (Yahoo 04.29.16; BBC 04.29.16) 


Little things can sometimes cause many problems and much irritation. I like Christian artist Francesca Battisteli’s song “This is the Stuff.” Francesca lists some of the little things that drive her crazy: losing her keys, can’t find her phone, and getting a ticket for speeding just a little. According to Francesca’s song these thing make her forget at times how much God has blessed her. Have you let the little things make you forget how much God has blessed you? 


It is in Song of Solomon chapter two where, “the little foxes that spoil the vines” is inserted in a passage where the writer is talking about the perfect love between a man and a woman. But is he not really talking about the perfect love that God has for His children; and, how so often little things can interfere with that perfect love between God and His creation? What little things have you allowed to come between the love you and God have for each other? Have you forgotten how much God has blessed you? Don't let the little things in life bring you down.
