Fruitful in Christ

Beware of the Little Foxes

You could be fruitful but if you don't pay attention to fox, he can destroy the fruit.

Song of Solomon 2:15 — Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.

  • The devil is a fox

The Devil Is A Sly Old Fox,
If I Could Catch Him
I'd Put Him In A Box
Lock The Box And Throw Away The Key
For All Those Tricks He's Played On Me.
I'm Glad I am a Christian (3x's)
I'm Trusting In The Lord.
