I heard about a couple of fellows who had separate run-ins with skunks that proved to be quite unpleasant. The first guy was riding on a lawnmower close to the woods when he got hit by a shower of stink before he ever saw the culprit who sprayed him. It took a while for his life to get back to normal!
The second fellow owned a little dog who came in and out of the house as he pleased through a small pet door. The little dog got sprayed by a skunk and ran back inside, taking the stink all over the house with him! I’m not sure if the house is back to smelling normal yet!
Sin can cause quite a stink in our lives if we aren’t careful. Sometimes the consequences affect many people and last for a long time.
Thankfully, Jesus can take away our sins and allow our lives to be a sweet-smelling fragrance to God once again!
“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”—1 John 2:2.
