I don't like that every new article is posted as a new topic....

here's one that I just read...

Refined Silver

A group of women were studying Tanach. They came across a passuk in Malachi, 3,3: "And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them like gold and silver.” This verse puzzled the women and they wondered how this statement applied to the character and nature of Hashem.

One woman called up a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him work. She didn’t mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining silver.

As she watched the silversmith work, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were the hottest, in order to burn away the impurities.

The woman thought about Hashem holding us in such a hot spot. Then she thought again about the verse: “He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.”

She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the entire time the silver was being refined. The man answered, “Yes”; that not only did he have to sit there holding the silver, but also he had to keep his eyes on it the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left even a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith: “How do you know when the silver is fully refined?” He smiled at her and answered: “Oh, that’s easy. When I see my image in it.”

If today, you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that you are in the hands of Hashem. He has His eyes on you and He will keep holding you and watching you until He sees His image in you.
