Beware of the Little Foxes 1

The sudden resignation and departure of Charles Kennedy, as the leader of the Liberal Party, is sadly to say the least, the case of the little foxes that have come to spoil the vine. (Sol.2:15)

At the height of the success of his party resulting from his stance of major issues and the public's desire for a viable political opposition, a skeleton lurked in the cupboard that hunted him.

Battling with the bottle, he brushed aside criticism that he was not winning the war with the booze.

And when he came clean political opportunism took over. He was not forgiven; he could not be trusted with the future of the party and so the horse trading behind his back. Perhaps there was no one he could confide in within the party.

And so the swords were out with the handwriting on the wall: 'Jump or we'll push you.' He felt it would be more honourable to jump, and that is what he has done.

It is very unfortunate. I hope he wins the battle with the bottle and bounce back to make meaningful contribution to the political life of this country.

The lesson to us all is that you cannot ignore the little foxes in your life. They are small but they are rootless. Little by little they do damage, and often do the greatest damage at the height of your success to bring you from grace to grass. The political field of the land is littered with many examples. 1Cor 10:12

Secondly, men are mortal and can be very unforgiving. Only God forgives when we repent and forsake. He gives us a clean slate and we can have a New Beginning with Him. The old goes and the new comes. Man will always remember the past and condemn us but God buries our past in the sea of forgetfulness, never to remember them. He even posts a sign: 'No fishing.' Micha7:19, Isa 1:18. Prov28:13, Ps51, 2Cor5:17

We all have our weak points, areas of vulnerability, Archilles Heels, waterloos, but as we acknowledge that we cannot overcome them ourselves, God helps us, often using other people, to show us that it is not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit.
Zech 4:6



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
