Paul’s epistle to Philemon is a short one in which he makes a plea for a man who was converted to Christianity. “I appeal to you for my child, Onesimus, whose father I became in my imprisonment. (Formerly he was useless to you, but now he is indeed useful to you and to me.)” (Philemon 1:10-11) The name Onesimus actually means profitable or useful. If you were named based on your character traits, what would your name be? Would it be a name that you were proud of?
