12 I am sending him—who is my very heart—back to you. Philemon 12
The is perhaps one of the best indirect compliments anyone can “give” to someone. He’s not actually telling the person directly but telling us about the person. Not only did word get back to Onesimus then, but it’s recorded for eternity in the Word of God. Now that is cool! We don’t know exactly what Onesimus did to deserve this honor but it was obviously borne out of a loyal friendship between the two. Most people would love to have this type of friendship with just one person, a friend to solve the world’s problems with or just to talk about…stuff.
Take some time today to solve another of the world’s problems with that friend. Give ’em a call or text.
