“For to God we are the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.”
2 Corinthians 2:15 (CSB)
I wish I could always leave behind me the sweet fragrance of Christ.
That is one of my life goals—and one of the hardest to attain. By nature I am critical, harsh, and always ready with a response that may or may not be loving. So I have to go against what is my nature in order to be sweet and kind. But, that’s my desire.
When I was a young woman, our pastor asked, “You young ladies out there—do you want to know how to be a sweet old woman? … Be a sweet young woman.”
That’s one of my Life Lessons right there.
I want to be the sweet fragrance of Christ, “an aroma of life
leading to life.”

A worthy but difficult undertaking!
I know. One might say "impossible," but then so is perfection, but we are to strive toward it. So, yes, a worthy undertaking.
