The Refiners Fire Or Instant Gratification

Pondering choosing the mercy of God over the death of sin…

How many have seen this video of the people choosing the candy bar over the bar of silver?

After seeing this video floating around, commenting a few times, sin came to mind and how we choose the sin so many times over choosing what is right and just.

I woke this morning and after praying, couldn’t stop thinking about “He will sit refining and purifying silver“.

Lord, help me to choose what is right and just. What is holy and not what is sinful. Help me with Your mercy, through your most Holy sacraments of Your church, to pull closer to you and distance myself from the world and all the empty promises that fill me with garbage, still leaving me hungry for You O Lord.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel, pray for me, a sinner. I choose the Refiners way and not the way that leads to eternal destruction. Purify me O Lord. To You be the glory, honor and praise, O Lord.
