Refining Silver

A group of women met regularly for a Torah/Bible Study class.  While they were studying the book of Malachi, in chapter three, they came across verse three, which says: "He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver."

This verse interested the women and they wondered how this statement applied to the character and nature of G-d.  One of the women thought it might be a good idea to find out more about the process of refining silver, and get back to the group at their next meeting.

The next week, the woman called up a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him while at 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 as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about G-d holding each of us in such a hot spot, and then she thought again about the verse that "He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver."  She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit 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 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 flame, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment.  Then she asked the silversmith,

"But how do you know when the silver is finely refined?"  

He smiled at her and answered, "Oh that's easy – when I see my image in it."
