Spring Cleaning: Chasing Away the Foxes, June 13, 2010

Song of Solomon 2:11-15
– most of us aren’t tripped up by the big foxes, it’s the little foxes that eat away at us and end up consuming us

Identifying the foxes:
1. Worry, cares, anxieties, fears (Matt. 6:19-34; 1 Peter 5:6-7; Phil. 4:6-7)

2. Insecurities
  – manifest as ultra-defensiveness, control, leagalistic, extreme shyness, hyper-sensitivity, acting out to get attention, extreme-comptetiveness, & false identity

3. Selfish ambitions – jealousies (James 3:13-16)

4. Wrong focus (Phil. 4:8; Matt. 13:22)
