Removing The Dross
“Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer. Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness” (Proverbs 25:4-5).
Today’s Morsel: Last year, my wife decided to dig out her silver for me to polish up for her. I will tell you that having to polish my military insignia for inspection was nothing compared to this task. But after I was done those pieces looked good. We are serving guests using those pieces now, they are vessels fit for use. Solomon said that if we take away the dross from the silver there will come forth a vessel for the finer. If we take away wickedness from the king, the throne will be established in righteousness. The same holds true with us. If we take away sin from our lives, we too can be a vessel of honor and fit for the master’s use.
Sing: Are you washed in the blood, in the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb. Are your garment spotless are they white as snow? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Thought For Today: Stay away from sin and you’ll shine bright (Parker).
