Aroma


The smell of coffee brewing in the early morning…

Bacon frying in the skillet…

A clean freshness in the air after a spring time shower…

The lingering fragrance of cologne as a loved one says good-bye for the day…

These sweet aromas, and many others, fill us with a peace and a sense of all is right in the in the world.

As we walk in love of God and love of others, we also leave a sweet aroma in their midst.

A simple smile…

A hug…

A visit or phone call instead of email…

A kind act…

A helping hand…

A listening ear…

A caring heart…

Will those you come in contact with, pause after you walk away and bask in the sweet aroma that you left behind?

Will you be a sweet-smelling aroma in the life of each person you encounter today?

Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling aroma.                                                                                                                Ephesians 5:1-2 NKJV
