Welcome To Proverbs Club
Silver, Gold, And Hearts
Proverbs 17:3 (NIV)

3) The crucible for silver and the furnace for gold,
but the Lord tests the heart.

Proverbs Club Commentary

The scriptural meaning of your “heart” is largely your “spirit”.
Jesus consistently evaluates your spirit, and purifies it as needed.
He works, through the Holy Spirit, to safeguard your Narrow Path.
