Whole sections of aisles in supermarkets have products to make your house smell good. Perhaps you’ve heard this as “aroma therapy,” a whole industry of sprays, oils, and candles. There’s even a device that will spray fragrance into your room every few minutes.
The sense of smell is very connected to us in a spiritual way. Readings like today can “spray” a kind of fragrance of wisdom into you. How about every once in a while taking a favorite verse and imagining it as a sweet fragrance filling the space all around you. God’s presence, like an aroma, can make your life smell sweet to others and lead them to God.
Tuesdays are dedicated to the the History and Writings of the Hebrew Scriptures.
