Catch the Foxes

 

Welcome to a new week!I hope you are getting a handle on the weekly challenges; they are in my opinion much manageable with attainable goals and objectives. Might I add, easily repeatable.

So here is your assignment for this week, apply and share them with others. These practical, ready to use, simple tips for your relationships will make a big difference. Isn’t it true that it’s the little things that matter most ? The ‘bigger’ issues stem are accumulations of the little things that destroy life, love and relationships. I love the sound counsel from the book of SOS chapter 2:15 (see below). The injunction here is simple, of course, the seemingly insignificant or ‘under the radar’, not so important things can cause grossly disproportionate damage(s). The charge requires a ‘action’ and not a reaction…guard firmly against letting things get bad before you respond or act. We must protect ourselves against the little foxes that do great harm to all facets of our life – spiritual, emotional, mental, physical.

Song of Solomon 2:15 – GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
15 Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that ruin vineyards. Our vineyards are blooming.
Another version reads, “Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines”

Here are some practical tips you can start implementing in your relationships. It doesn’t take a lot you know to make a significant difference so eliminate the excuses and just do it. It might appear awkward but JUST DO IT.

Here you go –

  1. Say a prayer for each other daily.
  2. Compliment each other.
  3. Spend 20 minutes of uninterrupted time together.
  4. Make a phone call or send a text just before driving.
  5. Say “I love you” at least three times a day.
  6. Perform one small – and unexpected gesture.
  7. Say thank you for something.

These are seemingly minor tasks but they go a long way.
Remember, Relationships really do Matter.

    I ‘m greatly encouraged by ur seemingly, gentle but cardinal words of advice.

    Those very simple words like I love u, thank u, please, sorry etc are quite Magical in relationships, because of their soothing nature and their capacity to douse down high voltage temperaments found in most humans.

    Yet, we most often than not ignore or trivialize them and the consequences are far greatet than what we could ever imagine.

    Embrace them and make use of them, they cost us absolutely nothing, but serve as conduits between the parties involved. In some cases, they are the life-wires upon which our relationships strives. “Especially, if used timely!!!!!!”

    • Victor, You are very welcome and thanks for your kind words.
