I am in love with this word! I was looking up the definition again so I could add it to the ‘Words! Page’ and this time I also reviewed the antonyms. You have to check this out! If you haven’t already, read the post over the scripture Psalm 66:10. That’s where it all started. 🙂
Refined = Free from impurities.
Synonyms of refined = Developed, evolved, forward, higher, improved, progressive, advanced.
Antonyms of refined = Backward, lower, nonprogressive, retarded, rude, undeveloped.
The scripture Psalm 66:10 states: “For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver.”
This word is powerful for me. It is a reminder that if I am not tested, I am not refined, and if I am not refined, I will be undeveloped. Or even nonprogressive. Yuck. Both of those words make my stomach turn. 🙂
