Sometimes we get busy doing our own thing and forget about social justice or meeting the needs of those on the margin of our society. Today's scripture from the middle of the 16th chapter finds the Apostle Paul in a moral dilemma. His goal is to tell people about Jesus. But, the needs of a slave girl get in the way of his mission. He has to stop and help her. Of course, that ends him in prison.
Are you willing to stop what you are doing to help someone in need? Of course, in Bible time, just as today, no good deed goes unpunished.
