Devotion – Philemon

S – 11 Once he was useless to you, but now he is useful both to you and to me. 12

 Philemon 1:11–12 CSB

O – Paul is talking about a slave who was once “useless, lazy, disappointing” and now because of his conversion to Christ, a new person and qualities.

A – It is easy to write people off.  We can get stuck in they will always be that way.  We have to extend the grace that God can do more on the inside than we can see on the outside.  It is not our place to judge others.  It is better to believe the best.

R – Lord, help me to do this today.
