Refining even the gold in our character

Gold has long been a symbol of what is most precious to mankind. But there's a kind of "gold" that holds more value than the crowns of monarchs or the treasuries of nations. It's found in the most noble qualities in human character: honesty, meekness, unselfishness, compassion, fidelity, and so on.

These qualities are so precious because they express a deep sense of morality and because they derive from the pure goodness of God. The exercise of moral qualities prepares the way for us to manifest more of the highest, spiritual qualities—such as holiness, wisdom, true love—that identify the real nature of man made in the likeness of God, who is infinite Spirit, divine Soul, unbounded Love.
