Smell Good

Ephesians 5:2 (ESV)
And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

God smells our thoughts and deeds.

This week, think how you smell to God. Are you kind like cookies baking, or rude like skunk spray? Humble like sweet alyssum, or arrogant like roofing tar? Hard-working like steak on the grill, or lazy like old garbage? Prayerful like incense, or critical like burned toast?

 

Do you best to smell like Christ.

    Good morning….your analogies this morning are pretty awesome…I thought for a min or two & obviously I associate w/both sides on sev of them…& I don’t feel in a bad way
    Kind…hopefully…90%..but when pushed &/or treated very negatively…the rude side definitely shows it’s NY side..& quite proud though too, to be from NY; hopefully very humble & Thank God everyday..for as much as I can remember to..sometimes I wonder too..are other people going thru some of this junk too…I have tried to learn not to take things for granted & be thankful for what I have truly thankful..hard-working..oh yes.. Taught both our kids that too…daddy @ times did 2 jobs..& both kids..now both grown & gone..2 jobs &/or side jobs…to make it work….last but not least prayer yes..but also critical too..@ times..looking @ people’s mindsets..& wonder…Oh..My..Heavens…which then makes me critical..no lie..& I sit there & scratch my head..!!!.idiosy…( not nice word..I know )..but no other word explains it…I guess I might be looking @ confession this wknd… That’s ok…he is really a neat cool priest…& I love talking to him… Hope you guys have a blessed day….`thanks Shirlee for these words of wisdom….Kathy Wyg
