I Love This Word! ‘Refined’

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.  🙂
