I sent him back to you – he is my very heart. I really wanted to keep him with me, so that on your behalf he might serve me while I am in chains for the Good News. But I didn’t want to do anything without your consent, so that your goodness wouldn’t be by force but by free will. (TLV) – Philemon 1:12-14
Nosh: Doing the right thing despite how we might feel defines faithfulness. Add to that a humble and generous motive and you have a servant’s heart. One with a servant’s heart is a blessing to many and greatly pleases God.
