Beware the Little Foxes

In Judges 15:4,5 there is a very interesting little story concerning Samson and some little Foxes. Samson caught 300 foxes and tied their tails together. He then tied torches to their tails and released them into the Philistines grain fields. Such small animals caused such great destruction. We must beware the Little Foxes in our own lives. Small things that become very Big things. An unkind word. A broken promise. Forgetting an anniversary, birthday special event. Not taking the time we should with our children. Communicating with our spouse on a regular basis about more than just logistical household concerns. Missing our daily devotional time. Not praying each day. Little things that can become big things and have devastating consequences. Pay attention to the small details today. They can pay big dividends.

  1. wow, this one is a great reminder! Goes right along with that new song that's out called "slow fade" It really helps me to pay close attention to my every day thoughts, words & actions.
