    "God's solid foundation still stands, however, with this double inscription: 'the Lord knows those who belong to him', and Let every true Christian have no dealing with evil. In any big household there are naturally not only gold and silver vessels but wooden and earthenware ones as well. Some are used for the highest purposes and some for the lowest. If a man keeps himself clean from the contaminations of evil he will be a vessel used for honourable purposes, clean and serviceable for the use of the master of the household, all ready, in fact, for any good purpose."
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Hi Gerry, below is how the New Jerusalem Bible translates it:

    2 Timothy 2:19-21
    "However, God's solid foundation-stone stands firm, and this is the seal on it: 'The Lord knows those who are his own' and 'all who call on the name of the Lord must avoid evil.' Not all the dishes in a large house are made of gold and silver; some are made of wood or earthenware: the former are held in honour, the latter held cheap. If someone holds himself aloof from these faults I speak of, he will be a vessel held in honour, dedicated and fit for the Master, ready for any good work."
