It would be good if the Lord used you today to sweeten the air around a friend.

For you see, your Spirit-led words can be as perfume to the heart and soul of that friend.

The Bible says so:

“The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.” (Proverbs 27:9)

Have a friend who is struggling with a decision regarding employment or a family need or a medical procedure?

Pray for wisdom from God and for compassion to intercede with thoughts and actions that have been filtered through the words of scripture.

Consider carefully how your words might be best received in the way intended.

Display a deep understanding of how the friend is feeling… the fears and the hopes.

When the friend believes that you are sincerely trying to help because of your love for him or her, the receptivity of the words will be better.

Just the fact that you genuinely care about him or her will speak volumes and provide a refreshing, sweet aroma to a heart burdened with sometimes-stinky concerns.

Our friends need divine perfume.

Let’s pray for God to supply us what they need.

As always, I love you
