What happens when you take away dross from silver? Solomon said,
“Take away the dross from silver, and it will go to the silversmith for jewelry” (Proverbs 25:4).
Okay, that is good to know, but you know that is in the Bible that we might see this as an illustration of something spiritual. Solomon continued,
“ Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne will be established in righteousness” (Proverbs 25:5).
What he said about kings, can also be said about each of us. Whatever authority, or influence, or good that we seek to do in this life, we can increase it by taking the wicked out of our lives.
