What’s That Smell?

Have you ever smelled milk gone bad… and kept smelling it for a while afterward?  Have you been eating and got ketchup on your shirt… and the stain will just not go away?  If you’ve had either experience, consider this…

Sin leaves a residue with everything it comes in contact with.  It lingers… sometimes for the rest of our life.

A careless word spoken at the wrong time leaves a stain… a bad smell.  A harsh look leaves a stain… a bad smell.  Not forgiving another leaves a stain… a bad smell.  Treating another person in a mean manner leaves a stain… a bad smell.  There are many ways to leave a stain in other people’s life.  There are many ways we can leave people with a bad smell once we leave them.
