Cinnamon Wikipedia, the Internet encyclopedia, says: “Cinnamon has been known from remote antiquity, and it was so highly prized among ancient nations that it was regarded as a gift fit for monarchs and other great potentates.” It was a valuable spice. To acquire cinnamon required sacrifice.
God has a call on our lives, which requires sacrifice. You must determine that your relationship with the Lord is more valuable than anything else you may choose. You cannot settle for that which is just good. Strive in your walk with the Lord for the best. To be anointed may cost you—your home, your friends, your career. This is the price of obtaining the fragrance of the cinnamon.
“ For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost, to see if he has enough to complete it? ” (Luke 14:28).
Carl Roos, an outstanding motivational speaker once asked, “Who is the navigator of your life?” Many will answer Jesus or the Holy Spirit. Roos says, “You are the navigator of your life. It is your choices that decide your success.”
Have you made your choices? Have you counted the cost? The fragrance of the cinnamon is costly, but it’s a price worthy of your sacrifices.
