There are times that people judge things more by smell than by reality. Sometimes things are not what they really appear to be by smell. When an individual smells something stinky in his food, he is not going to eat even if it tastes good. When an individual smells something strange in his clothes, he is not going to wear it even if it is washed. When an individual smells someone else's body odour on his bed, he is not going to sleep on it even if it is comfortable. Yes, things are not what they really appear to be by smell. However, there are many who still judge things by smell. Likewise, there are many who still judge Christians by how they smell them. In other words, even if the saint didn't commit the sin, the world will still judge his actions by what they appear to be. Despite of one's good intentions, the sad fact is that the majority discerns you by your outward actions, rather than your inward intentions. The Lord may know what is really going on in your heart, but men look at what you do on the outside. The word of God never said to abstain from all kinds of evil, but rather to abstain from all appearances of evil. Why? The reason is because what you do outwardly is how people determine what you do inwardly. If you cannot smell your stench, then you probably will not change until a certain brother tells you, "Somebody stinks."

 

Joel 2:20
But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.

 

  1. The Stink Goes ahead of You
  2. The Stink Goes at You
  3. The Stink Goes above You
