Trial by fire

" The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts."  Proverbs 17:3

The gold and/or silver smiths must get their fires really hot, just the right temperature, in order to melt the fine metal and bring forth the trash so it can be discarded before they can get the best gold and silver. Just as with silver and gold, we should always remember to be thankful the Lord finds us worthy to go through His trials, and know that when we come out on the other side we'll be much better for it.
