Boys Will Be Boys

Boys will be boys, especially when it comes to taking a bath. Devious moms have come up with some inventive solutions to this age-old quandary, which still has boys wrinkling up their noses. Well at least until they discover girls.

The point comes in every child's life when they don't need mom's help to wash their hair, which for most boys is about the same time they begin to disdain cleanliness. Clever moms buy masculine looking shampoo and soap dispensers in the fervent hope that they will actually use them. Maybe that is where boys learn the sniff test? Comes in handy in college when you don't have time to do laundry.

Boys however, prefer to be wild and ndomesticated for the most part, until they discover girls, and decide that one of the things they like about them is that they smell nice. The idea of using flowers and perfumes dates back to antiquity, but while modern science has given us artificial scents in just about every product imaginable, really good perfumes are still expensive.

We notice when a woman walks by and the aroma of her perfume lingers in the air. Advertisers and romance writers all capitalize on our experience of smelling odors or scents long after the source of the smell has been removed. Perhaps the Apostle Paul had this in mind when he told believers in the early church that they were the aroma of Jesus.

But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him. For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life.
2 Corinthians 2:14-16

Some times with guys... well they get carried away... and the after shave can be a bit over powering... Hey! We're guys! We don't do things half way!!

When it comes to the fragrance of Jesus in our lives, are people attracted to us because we smell like Jesus?



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
