What Fragrance are You?, by Gini Kittle

Second Corinthians 2:14 says,But thanks be to God, who … manifests through us the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.” What do people think about God as a result of being around you? Are you producing a sweet aroma or a stinking smell?

Recently, while on vacation we were taking family photos in a very picturesque spot when another family stepped directly behind us to take their photos … ruining our shots! Normally, I probably would have “made a stink” about their rude behavior and been mad, or at least asked them to wait until we were finished. But on this occasion, as we disassembled from our failed photographic session, I asked them if they would like me to take a picture of all of them together. They were so thankful and took up my offer! I realized then and there that they probably didn’t even realize they had stepped into our picture. They were nice people who just wanted a family picture with a great view … just like us! And because the Lord helped me resist offense and care about others, I was able to release the fragrance of Christ instead of making a stint!
