People are the Problem (Philemon 17-25)
In our penultimate study on Philemon we look at the reality that people let us down. We all know what it feels like to be hurt by someone close to us. Paul takes the risk because he knows that he needs Philemon. From these verses we learn the reality of sin in people and our response when people do let us down.
