Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones” (Psa l37:8,9).

Even a heartless person will find it difficult to dash little ones against a rock. But God Who is most gracious and compassionate, exhorts the saints to do it. It is even surprising to read that the one who does this act shall be happy.

These words were spoken against the daughter of Babylon. Babylon the Great is called ‘the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth’ (Rev 17:5). If Babylon stands for all immoralities and abominable sins, the daughter of Babylon could stand for the little sins of impurities and defilements.

Happy, and of course, blessed shall he be, who searches out the seemingly insignificant sins in his life and dashes them against the Rock which is Christ i.e. destroys these sins (darkness) by bringing them to Christ (the Light).

“Take us the foxes, the little foxes (little sins), that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes” (S.S. 2:15). These foxes enter through the small holes in the fence and spoil the vines eating up the tender sweet grapes. In other words, these little foxes or sins will spoil our vine, even our good testimony, our joy, peace and grace. When tender grapes are eaten up, fruitfulness is cut off. Once these little foxes come inside the garden they no more remain little but in no time turn into fatted foxes and hence will not be able to go out through the “little holes” they came through. “No sin is small. No grain of sand is small in the mechanism of a watch,” said Jeremy Tailor.

Be “very cruel” to the very little sins in your life and “dash them against the Rock!”
