I love when baking and the smell of the warm spices feel the house. It just sinks all the way in and makes me feel satisfied without even eating anything. But the fragrance soon goes away.
Oils, however, the fragrance last for a longer time. I’m sure that you have hugged someone and their perfume rubs off on to you and for the rest of the day, you are reminded of that person.
When you receive good counsel from a dear friend. It stays with you. When it pops up in your mind later that counsel still encourages you.
Oil and perfume make the heart glad,and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel.Proverbs 27:9
Take the time to be the oil of encouragement that someone might need today.
