Bible: 2 Tim 2:19-22

2:19 However, God’s solid foundation remains standing, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are his,” 1  and “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord 2  must turn away from evil.”

2:20 Now in a wealthy home 3  there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also ones made of wood and of clay, and some are for honorable use, but others for ignoble use. 4  2:21 So if someone cleanses himself of such behavior, 5  he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart, useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 2:22 But keep away from youthful passions, and pursue righteousness, faithfulness, love, and peace, in company with others 6  who call on the Lord from a pure heart. 7
