2 Timothy 1:5
When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in you, which dwelled first in your grandmother Lois, and your mother Eunice…
A lady and gentleman were being shown over the Mint by the Master of the Mint, who took them from the gate where the rough gold came in until they saw it going out in the form of coins to the bank for distribution all over the country. When they were in the melting-room, the Master said, "Do you see that pail of liquid?" "Yes." "If you dip your hand into it I will pour a ladleful of molten gold into your hand, and it will roll off it without hurting you." "Oh!" was the remark somewhat sceptically made. "Do you not believe me?" inquired the Master. "Well; yes, I do," replied the gentleman. "Hold out your hand, then." When he saw the boiling gold above his hand, ready to be poured out, the gentleman took a step back, and, in terror, put his hand behind his back. The lady, however, stooped down, dipped her hand into the liquid, and holding it out, said, "Pour it into my hand." She really believed, and could trust, but her friend had not the practical faith to enable him to trust.
