Beautiful but Disgusting Smelling Flower October 19

This past summer there was anticipation of a beautiful but putrid smelling flower going into full bloom at Vancouver’s Bloedel Conservatory. The beautiful titan arum plant has been described as smelling like “rotten flesh, with notes of old fish and decayed cabbage”. It is hard to believe something so beautiful could produce something so putrid. In Jesus day He makes a comparison of something that appears to be beautiful but has a disgusting element to it. What Jesus describes is self-righteousness. In describing the self-righteous religious rulers of His day, He describes them as, “whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.” Not a picture you would want to emulate!
