Deuteronomy 11:22 "And cleave to Him"

As Debby's mother came home from shopping, Debby exclaimed: "Mommy, did you buy perfume?"

"No, I didn't buy any, but I did browse in the perfume department.

How did you know?" her mother asked in surprise.

"You smell great!" Debby answered. "Even your coat has a lovely smell!"

We are commanded to spend as much time as we can among wise and righteous people. We will see their good deeds and learn from them. Being in the company of such people will influence us.

Just as perfume spreads its beautiful aroma and clings to all those that come near it, so, too, the ways of the righteous will inspire us to better ourselves and act as they do.
