A Pleasing Fragrance

>> Thursday, January 23, 2014

As I opened the mailbox, a lovely fragrance wafted out. And then I spied the package. Without a doubt, I knew what it contained…bath salts…a gift from my daughter. When those salts are dissolved in the bath water, the whole bathroom is filled with a pleasing aroma. And I get to choose…lavender…warming balsam fir…tranquil chamomile.
 
Not all odors are wonderful.

My husband and I used to own a business located in the basement of a dental office. At lunchtime, my husband would heat some brussel sprouts in the microwave. He discontinued that practice when the assistant from upstairs complained that it smelled like someone farted in their waiting room.

What kind of scent do you exude?

I’m not talking about body odor…although that can sometimes be an issue. I’m referring to the fragrance of your life. Does the essence of your being radiate a pleasant ambiance? Or do people avoid you?

“Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God…” 2 Corinthians 2:14 (MSG)

On any given day, my hair might be a fright and my make-up lacking, but I always make sure I smell clean. However, the Holy Spirit has been telling me I need to pay more attention to my spiritual hygiene. Thanks for being His physical voice.

Coming back to share - As I was thinking about your message, I remembered my Bible reading from today from 2 Samuel. The king of the Ammonites disgraced King David's sons and ambassadors, and David calls him "a stench in my nostrils." I don't want to be a stench in anyone's nostrils.
Love you - thanks again.
