The Parable of the Lamp- Matthew. 5:13-16
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
What is the difference between gold filled and gold plated jewelry?
Gold Filled jewelry is constructed with a thick layer of solid gold mechanically bonded to a base metal (eg. brass, silver) with heat and pressure. Gold filled generally lasts much longer than most electroplated jewelry when looking for a wallet-friendly alternative to sold 14k gold.
Gold Plated jewelry consists of a very thin layer of gold being electrically charged onto a base metal or sterling silver. If sterling silver is plated in gold this can also be referred to as “Vermeil”. Gold plated jewellery is the cheapest and lowest quality of the three metal types. Gold plating will generally wear off rather quickly and expose the brass base product. Because the layer of gold is so thin, it does not stand up to heat, water or wear over time.
