Silver and Gold


Ps 46:2-3, 5-6, 8-9

R. (5) The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High! God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in distress. Therefore, we fear not, though the earth be shaken and mountains plunge into the depths of the sea. R. The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High! There is a stream whose runlets gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High. God is in its midst; it shall not be disturbed; God will help it at the break of dawn. R. The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High! The LORD of hosts is with us; our stronghold is the God of Jacob. Come! behold the deeds of the LORD, the astounding things he has wrought on earth. R. The waters of the river gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High!

I read an article, this morning, from someone in the Vatican, that troubled me. I began to think about the future of the church. But then, with the Lord's help, I brought my imagination under control, and read this Psalm. In peace, my focus returned to - You are God, i am not.

1Peter 1:7 "so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;"

Isaiah 48:10" Behold, I have refined thee, but not as silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction."

Proverbs 17:3 "Gold and silver are tested by fire, and a person's heart is tested by the Lord."
