We often concern ourselves only with the big things and we think if we get only the big things right the little things will fall into place. However, the little things matter too. The Bible gives us wisdom about everything in life even relationships.
Relationships are complex and though there are big areas that we need to watch out for, we cannot overlook the little things that can destroy the relationship. If you only pay attention to the big things of fidelity, finances, and the future, you can miss the little things like kindness, thoughtfulness and selflessness.
“Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love, for the grapevines are blossoming!” (Song 2:15) Catching the little foxes requires diligence. If they are left to their own devices, they will destroy the relationship completely. Take some time to examine those relationships around you and see if there are traces of little foxes. Get rid of them before their presence takes its toll on you.
