The crucible is for silver, and the furnace is for gold,
and the Lord tests hearts.
Each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done.
Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God.
Proverbs 17:3; 1 Corinthians 3:13; 1 Corinthians 4:5 (ESV)
