VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Articles of gold and silver

"But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver,"

"and some for honorable and noble [use]"

Gold and silver are for honorable and noble purposes/uses.

1. Fear of the LORD is valuable

Psalms 19:9-10 (Amplified Bible)

The [reverent] fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.

More to be desired are they than gold, even than much fine gold; they are sweeter also than honey and drippings from the honeycomb.

2. ALMIGHTY GOD is our Gold and Silver

Job 22:24-25 (Amplified Bible)

If you lay gold in the dust, and the gold of Ophir among the stones of the brook [considering them of little worth],

And make the Almighty your gold and [the Lord] your precious silver treasure,

3. Our ways are gold

Job 23:10 (Amplified Bible)

But He knows the way that I take [He has concern for it, appreciates, and pays attention to it]. When He has tried me, I shall come forth as refined gold [pure and luminous].

4. Wisdom and understanding are gold and silver

Proverbs 3:14 (Amplified Bible)

For the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver, and the profit of it better than fine gold.

5. Our good name is gold and silver

Proverbs 22:1 (Amplified Bible)

A GOOD name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold.

6. We can buy gold from GOD with no money

Revelation 3:18 (Amplified Bible)

Therefore I counsel you to purchase from Me gold refined and tested by fire, that you may be [truly] wealthy, and white clothes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nudity from being seen, and salve to put on your eyes, that you may see.

B. Articles of wood and clay

"but also [utensils] of wood and earthenware,"

Never be like this, not usable to the master.

IX. CONCLUSION:

We are articles of gold and silver for noble purposes.
