Daily Strengths for Daily Needs
Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.--ISA. xlviii. 10.
I tell thee, dear child, open thy heart to the pain, and it will do thee more good than if thou wert full of feeling and devoutness. J. TAULER.
He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver (Mal. 3:3).
The old refiner never leaves his crucible, but sits down by it, lest there should be one excessive degree of heat to mar the metal. But as soon as he skims from the surface the last of the dross, and sees his own face reflected, he puts out the fire. --Arthur T. Pierson
