Some years ago I encouraged our congregation to memorize Song of Solomon 2:15… “Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that are ruining the vineyards, while our vineyards are in blossom.”  I had picked up the idea in some of my studies.

Selfishness                    … Spoils love

Discontent                    … Spoils joy

Anxious thoughts        … Spoils peace

Impatience                   … Spoils longsuffering

Bitter words                 … Gentleness

Indolence                      … Spoils Goodness

Doubt                             … Spoils Faith

Pride                               … Meekness

Love of Pleasure           … Spoils Temperance

Together we can lock on to these things and grow immeasurably!
