Philemon 7-10. Paul’s prayer was for his friend’s love to be applied more widely. Now he turns to what that means in practice: welcoming back his slave not with harsh anger but as a Christian brother. However, Paul doesn’t command this. Instead, he displays the trust and respect he has for his friend by making a powerful appeal in love.
