Have you noticed the interest in gold lately? Everyone in the last year or so has be hocking their old gold for cash. What makes the cost of gold increase? I know I have taken a few things that I just don’t ever see come back in style. I could be wrong if Mr.T ever has a comeback. I love the commercial that tells you to mail it and they will send you cash!! How convenient is that? Gold is beautiful and has to be refined to extract all the impurities out of it.
The bible refers to faith-of greater worth than gold. Gold is an earthly treasure but Faith is an eternal treasure. Our faith is often tested in the hard times of life. Often our trials make us or breaks us. Have you ever been on a team and you bail when the game gets too hard? It is the same being on God ‘s team and our faith will outlast our trials if we trust in God.
“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.” 1 Peter 1:6-7
