Little Foxes

Introduction

This is one of the most memorable teaching I had during my DTS. Below are the notes that I made of the teaching. It still gives me a lot of joy that this is from Songs of Songs. Are you ready to catch your little foxes too?


My Notes

  • feelings that enter in our life, our relationship with God.

Text Songs 2:12-15

"Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom."

1. What Are Little Foxes?

  • These are small sins in our lives.
  • The smaller they are they will also destroy our communion with God.

Sex. Fantasies come through your mind. Like a drug. It enters your body, brings fantasies that satisfy your body.

2. Man's Point of View.

  • Fox A. Jealousy & Envy. You desire something what the other person has.
  • Fox B. Murmuring & Complaining.
    1. Is you to make sound that is low and soft, whispering.
    2. To deplore
    3. To grumble, to speak in a low voice.
    4. To speak secretly.
    5. To speak badly about someone, to criticize. Not satisfied, not happy with what is going on.
