3:3 says: ‘He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.’ 


This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they

wondered what this statement meant about the character

nature of God.

One of the women offered to find out the process of

silver and get back to the group at their next Bible


That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an

to watch him at
work. She didn’t mention

anything about the reason for her interest beyond her
curiosity about the process of refining Silver.


As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver

the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in
refining silver,

one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire

the flames were hottest as to burn away all the


The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot

then she thought again about the verse that says: 

 ‘He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.’  


She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to
sit there

in front of the fire the whole time. 


The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there
holding the silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire
time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in
the flames, it would be destroyed.


The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the
silversmith, ‘How do you know when the silver is fully refined?’

He smiled at her and answered,

‘Oh, that’s easy — when I see my image in it.’  


If today you are feeling the heat of the fire , remember that God has
his eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in


this on right now. This very moment, someone needs to know that God is
watching over them.


And, whatever they’re going through, they’ll be a better

person in the end.

‘Life is a coin. You can spend it anyway you wish, but
you can

only spend it once.’
