Psalm 66:10 For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver.


Hockey Chat:  The original Stanley Cup is made of pure silver.  This precious metal for the prestigious Cup, was worked by a silversmith who makes silver in it’s purest form by first placing it over an intense flame.  This high heat melts the metal and separates the impurities from the true silver. It is considered pure when the silversmith can see his reflection in it.


Life Lesson:  God is the silversmith of our lives.  He works on us to help us become pure and righteous through his Son.  We experience the high heat in life through the trials that we endure.  Those moments help remove the impurities we have and to build our character to be more like him.  God knows we are good when our lives reflect him.
