Philemon 15-19. God loves to see reconciliation. Paul presses this on his slave-owning friend, as he returns the runaway slave Onesimus to him. He hints that maybe God even brought about these circumstances so that they could come together in a new way as Christian brothers. Paul himself is so thrilled with the possibility that he’s willing to clear any debts on Onesimus’ behalf to bring a fresh start. Such generosity is an important Christian trait.
