The devotion between Solomon and his lover is an epic romance filled with desperate longing and poetic tributes.  We are reminded of the passion that bonds a man and woman.  

Marriage can be a picture of Jesus and the Church.  There is a delicate balance to maintaining a healthy marriage.

She said:

Song Of Solomon 2:
14 My dove in the clefts of the rock,
       in the hiding places on the mountainside,
       show me your face,
       let me hear your voice;
       for your voice is sweet,
       and your face is lovely.
 15 Catch for us the foxes,
       the little foxes
       that ruin the vineyards,
       our vineyards that are in bloom.

The gentleness of Jesus is a hidden presence that must be sought out.  She asks her lover to catch the little foxes that ruin the good things that are growing.  In the life of a group of Christ followers, there are offenses and attitudes which will ruin the good things that God intends to grow.  The Holy Spirit is at work to help us see the ‘little foxes’ and catch them before they cause further destruction.

Moving forward, our love for Jesus will experience greater fruitfulness for having tended the vineyard.
