Is Your Christian LIfe LIke A Rose?
Many people love roses. All sorts of roses. Not only real roses but we like roses painted on furniture, printed on the fabric of the clothes we wear, roses on dishes and even fake roses stuck here and there in a vase in our homes. Roses are beautiful! Lovers like to give roses to each other, not only because they are pretty but also they smell lovely. How is your Christian life? Does it look like a rose? It can look pretty on the outside but more important does it smell nice? Do you have attitudes that stink? Do you have a bad habit that leaves off a smelly aroma? You say, "Oh it isn't that bad. It's a small thing and that's just the way I am." So we keep right on saying a few harsh words which leaves an unpleasant aroma behind us. Let's take a good look at our rose to see how it smells. We want to be that sweet smelling rose for Jesus.
Light for Today: Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God. Ephesians 5:2 NLT
