For Reflection: 1 Peter 1:7"These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world." - 1 Peter 1:7
When gold is melted, impurities float to the top and can be skimmed off. Steel is tempered or strengthened by heating it in fire. In the same way, our trials, struggles, and persecutions refine and strengthen our faith, making us useful to God. When you through tough times, ask God to teach you his lessons and to show you how to use your experience to glorify him. And remember, if you're being tried by fire, your faith is valuable to God.
