Paul wrote personal letters from his Roman prison cell to his friends and sons in the faith, Titus and Philemon. The Apostle encourages Titus to hold fast the Word and to silence false teachings. He knew the greatest danger for the church is deception. His message to Philemon shows the importance of repentance, restitution, and restored relationships. In this little letter, we learn never to give up on the “black sheep” of the family.
