Whole sections of aisles in supermarkets are devoted to products designed to have your house smell fragrant. A sophisticated name, “aroma therapy,” is given to further the marketing of these sprays, oils, and candles. A device will periodically spray fragrance into your room every few minutes.
The sense of smell leads us into spiritual feelings associated with our world. God’s Word can do the same, especially chapters such as the one for today. An aroma of wisdom and spiritual understanding will fill your day if you let God’s presence through the Word pervade it. Periodically let each verse “spray” its sweet fragrance into the agenda of your day. The aroma of God’s presence will not only transform all that you do, but your life itself will smell sweet to others and lead them to God.
