I was 40 when my mom died. For a year I wore her perfume instead of my own. It was a nice reminder.
Once when my nephew hugged me and suddenly started talking about my mom (his grandma), he admitted her fragrance had triggered thoughts of her.
My mother has been dead 20 years, but when I smell her perfume, I still think of her and her faith, character, values, and the things she did.
Scripture says that Christians spread the fragrance of Christ, a fragrance of Christ-belief, Christ-character, Christ-values, a fragrance of the things He does.
“For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing” 1 Corinthians 2:14-15.
The closer we get to Christ, the more of His fragrance we wear. Today, let’s open God’s Word and savor the sweet fragrance of His grace and truth and let some more rub off on us.
1000 Gifts: I'm so grateful for the fragrance of Christ that my mom spread while she was on earth and so grateful for the fragrance of Christ in others.
