REFINING THE CHRISTIAN




We have learned how silver and gold is purified by the refiner's
fire; how it separates the purity from the impurity. So it is when
we are given praise by others. Our response will show what is in
our hearts. Are we prideful, feeling superior, and self-satisfied?
O are we even more humbled and willing to be given and poured
out for the honor of God?

Heavenly Father, may we never be puffed up by praise, but let
it give us motivation to ever be busying ourselves with seeking
to glorify your name. In Jesus' name.

Read Proverbs 27:21

"The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold, but man is tested
by the praise he receives." (NIV)

"As the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so is a man
to his praise." (KJV)
