Very different than the rest of this letter, Paul talks about his travel plans and especially his relationship with two close friends: Timothy and Epaphroditus. Complimenting them both, Paul highlights attributes such as a genuine concern for the welfare of others, a servant’s heart, and a same-souled passion for the lost. How can we make friends like these men? How can we be a friend like these men? And will we put as our most prized friendship, the friendship we are invited into with God through his son Jesus Christ?
