Refiner of Silver

Malachi 3:3 says, “He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.”

Silversmiths hold silver in the middle of the fire where the flames are the hottest in order to burn away impurities.  He/she must remain with the silver the entire time it’s in the fire, for if it is left a moment too long in the flames, it will be destroyed.  The metal is fully refined when the silversmith can see his/her image reflected in it.

I don’t know about you, but when I’m in the midst of the fires of life, it’s hard to remember that He is present, that I am being refined, and that in the end, He will be more reflected in my life.
