Philemon and forgiveness
The Lord said a great deal about forgiveness. We tend to focus on the forgiveness we receive, but the Lord tied forgiveness and forgiving together. Philemon’s servant and relative had done wrong and run. He had been saved and returned. Paul gave him a letter for Philemon. In that letter Paul gives Philemon every possible reason why he should forgive, and be fully reconciled to Onesimus.
