Your Faith

Things made of gold are very valuable. Many people today wear gold rings and necklaces. Some people love gold so much that their goal in life is to have more gold.
We need to remember that gold is beautiful and valuable, but it can be destroyed. In our Bible Reading today Peter says, “Gold can be proved to be pure by fire, but gold will ruin” (verse 7b). Gold and all our other possessions on earth are temporary. These things should not be our goal in life.
Peter goes on to say that our goal in life should not be things on earth. Our goal should be our faith in Jesus and salvation through Him. “When your faith is proven to be pure, the result will be praise and glory and honor when Jesus Christ comes” (verse 7b).
So what is your goal today? Are you working to have more money and possessions? Or are you working to build your faith in Jesus?
