Malachi 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 and nature of God.

One of the women offered to find out the process of
refining silver and get back to the group at their
next Bible Study.

That week, the woman called a
silversmith and made an appointment 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 over 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 where the flames were
hottest as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman
thought about God holding us in such a hot spot 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 silver was being

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 you.

Greatness lies, not in being strong, but in the right using of strength; and strength is not used rightly when it serves only to carry a man above his fellows for his own solitary glory. He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own -- Bryant
