FORGIVEN . . . . . Philemon 10, 16 Paul asked Philemon not only to forgive his runaway slave who had become a Christian, but to accept him as a brother. As Christians, we should forgive as we have been forgiven (Matthew 6:12; Ephesians 4:31-32). True forgiveness means that we treat the person we’ve forgiven as we would want to be treated. Is there someone you say you have forgiven, but who still needs your kindness?
