Anosmia and God’s mysterious gift of smell

Paul thought smell was significant enough to use it in a very vivid analogy: "But thanks be to God, who ... uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing. To the one we are an aroma that brings death; to the other, an aroma that brings life." (2 Cor. 2:14-16.)

I'm an offensive stench and a pleasing aroma all at the same time. Awesome.
