1 Peter 1:7 says: " That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ." Our trials are like fire , they refine our characters so we may be ready when Jesus comes again!
There is a story about a young man who asked a goldsmith : "When do you know the gold is purified?" The goldsmith answered : "When I can see my reflection in it!" Wow ! Jesus knows when our characters are purified, when He can see His reflection in us!
When you go through trials , remember: They are necessary to refine our characters, so we can be like Christ.
