Continued on next page erhaps some of you helped your mother or your grandmother polish sterling silver, particularly before holiday gatherings. As you sat at the table with soft cloths and creamy polish, you may have chatted about some things that were of importance or perhaps laughed at nothing at all. At any rate, the smooth, circular, repetitious polishing motions worked a remarkable feat. From the grayish-black tarnish emerged the original warm, gleaming silver sheen as if it were new again. Of course, silver that is regularly handled and used seldom needs polish, but as it sits it collects layers of tarnish from disuse. Perhaps our faith in God behaves in much the same fashion. The more we use it, the brighter it shines. Yet, should we neglect it, our faith dims and it takes more strength to renew it once more. "Let light shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts " 2 Corinthians 4:6 Worship this week. Your faith need not dim. Polish it with praise and prayer. It will shine like new.
