The enemy uses people like puppet to try and get to you. It is vital to remember this when someone mistreats you.
He can also use you as his puppet if you let him. This happens when, for example, you take offence or don’t glorify God with your lifestyle.
God also uses people, but as vessels. A vessel is a canal that is used to transport something.
God uses people to “transport” His Word and love.
Vessels still have free will to be used, but a puppet is forced to do something and is condemned.
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 2:21
You have to choose if you are going to be a vessel which God can use for the good, or a puppet which the enemy will use for his selfish work.
