Refined As Silver

Posted on: 7-15-112015

Recently someone shared a story with me about a silversmith.  He said that the silversmith was asked how he knew how long to continue heating the silver to ensure that it came out as it should.  The silversmith said he continued heating the silver until he could see his face reflected in the melted silver.  At that point, he knew the silver was perfect for his use. In much the same way as the silversmith heats up the silver to refine it, God allows trials and tribulations in our life to refine us.  He allows our circumstances and situations to “heat up” to the point where our own self melts away and His image is reflected in us.  Although it can be very difficult to go through the refining process, being a reflection of Him is more than worth it.

“For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver is refined.” Psalm 66:10
