As I was reading I came across 2 Timothy 2:21. In a few versions of the bible they use the word purges rather than cleanses. I found it interested not only for personal possessions but for inner heart purging as well. I ended up reading all of 2 Timothy 2 but I wanted to share 2 Timothy 2:20-21.
20. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 2 Timothy 2:20-21 (NKJV)
Oh, on a side note... I happen to be going to meet author Beverly Lewis tomorrow morning at 10:00 at a local library. I've almost read all her books and found out last week that she will be in my area of Ohio on her new book tour. Yippy.
