Series Philemon - Plea from a Friend

One of life’s greatest blessings is friendship. It is also one of life’s greatest challenges, as we need wisdom to understand what love requires in a variety of different situations. How do we lovingly encourage, and how do we compassionately hold one another accountable? In the second half of Paul's short letter to his friend, Philemon, we see the apostle leaning into the challenges and strengths of real friendship in Christ—a relationship that brings both privileges and responsibilities.
