How Do You Smell?
People used to praise God by giving Him burnt offerings. They would burn up things that were valuable – incense, first fruits, animals that were their livelihood – and Scripture said it was a pleasing aroma to God. It smelled good! But there were also times when the smell of God’s people turned foul. Because their hearts and their lives were no longer full of genuine praise, it was like rotten milk! And God was repelled by His people – their smell made Him sick! Paul talks about us being an aroma to God. And my question for you is this: How do you smell?
