If anyone keeps clear of the latter ones, he will be an instrument for an honorable use. This is taken from 2 Timothy 2:21.
Paul wrote about “A large house” with”utensils… for an honorable use but others for a used lacking honor.” This is taken from 2 Timothy 2:20.
He admonished Christians to separate themselves from the utensils that are used for a purpose “lacking honor.” In a house, some utensils may become contaminated by dangerous substance or unsanitary conditions. The householder will keep such implements separate from clean utensils, such as those used for cooking. Likewise, Jehovah’s people today, strive to live cleaning lives, should I avoid intimacy with individuals in the congregation who persistently disregard Jehovah’s principles. 1 Corinthians 15:33 tells us: “Do not be misled. Bad association spoil useful habits.”
If this is true of some inside the congregation, how much more should we “turn away” from having close association with those outside the congregation, many of whom are ‘lovers of money, without love of goodness, and lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God’! This is taken from 2 Timothy 3:1–5.
