February 14, Philemon A letter to a friend

Imagine a letter that you write to a friend asking for a favor being included into the canon of scripture. That's exactly what happened here. Paul sends a personal letter to a friend asking a favor for another friend. Onesimus was a runaway slave belonging to Philemon and by some course of events finds Paul. And in the process becomes a devoted believer. Paul is sending him back withthe letter asking for forgiveness for even more than the wrong but forgivness and freedom. Consider that's what Jesus does for us, we've been runaways but came to Him. Just as Paul asked Philemon to accept Onesimus, Jesus brings us to God the Father.
