There’s a beautiful poem entitled, “Flowers Leave Their Fragrance on the Hand of the Giver,” and the words are true. Every good deed, every selfless kindness, every thoughtful action which comes from a heart full of faith — a heart touched by the abundance the Lord has freely given — has a way of blessing the giver and multiplying the gift. Like the ripple effect of a stone tossed into water, the circles that emanate can reach many unseen shores.
So it is with the greatest love of all. Jesus’ redemptive work on the cross comes to us through God’s Word. By the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, we are made clean and acceptable to God through faith in the salvation Christ has won for us. God’s fragrance, the perfect sacrifice of His Son, is offered to everyone.
It is free. Share it the next chance you get.
THE PRAYER: Thank You, Father, for Your love. Help me today and always to have the courage to pass it on. Amen.
