I came home from work today to an “unpleasant” surprise! Evidently, a skunk had wandered close to our back deck sometime during the day and left us a “present!” I’m sure you get my . . .drift. . Whew!
This got me thinking about how powerful smells are. If you want to sell your house, you need to have homemade chocolate chip cookies in the oven. It seems that smelling cookies baking, makes one “feel at home” and want to stay. Have you ever smelled perfume or cologne and it reminds you of someone special? There’s nothing like the smell of fresh mowed grass or a baby right after a bath!
Did you know that Christians are supposed to smell? II Corinthians 2:15 says, “For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ. . .” Yes, we’re supposed to smell – we’re supposed to be a sweet fragrance. We should exude the “essence” of Christ. He should be so much a part of us that He just “seeps” out so that others know Him through us. How do you smell? God Bless, Courtney
