Today I read something that resonated with me, so much so that I just had to create this post.
The blacksmith would heat the metal to a certain temperature to melt off specific impurities, and then he would raise the temperature higher to melt off other impurities. This process would continue until the original ore was purified.
This provided me with the perfect analogy for what trials and tribulations has been decreed for us all, by God’s will.
Any attributes that does not meet the standard would then be filtered out and those who did, would go on to be tested further within our capabilities, until there was some respite in the form of happiness. We are all subjected to alternative waves of different trials and tribulations to help define who we are.
Any undesirables would then, always have their true colours exposed, be found out and then removed. Filtered.
It is also quite the test of good manners, to be patient with the bad ones.
Hence why I see it as a case of, a survival of the fittest.
Always be the best that you can be and strive to be as righteous as you can be.
