Song of Solomon: Request 19 Apr 2020
Solomon is instructed by his beloved to catch the little foxes. As you see below fox hunting is not a simple one man job. Foxes are smart and do damage.
Observe the 'us' in 'catch the foxes for us'. The beloved asks as well help for her family.
In most communities there are as well little 'foxes' which ravage the vineyard. In Sol 2:15 the beloved simply asks a powerful lover to deal with the issues. Usually divisions rank high among the community difficulties. We should ask God to intervene with our divisions and perhaps with our blindness for the damage done by subgroups and quarrels.
This is as well valid for my own relationships and friendships. I should ask God help for issues that rob me from the joy of healthy relationships.
Catch the foxes for us,
the little foxes that make havoc of the vineyards,
for our vineyards are in fruit.
