Acts 23: 16 “But when the son of Paul’s sister heard of this plot, he went into the barracks and told Paul.”
Suddenly we have a small but interesting detail of Paul’s personal life. He has a sister. He has a nephew. They have been kept informed of what has been happening to Paul. When the family heard of the danger to Paul they couldn’t sit around and not do anything, they had to intervene. That’s what families do.
They listen out to all that people say.
They can decipher a plot from an opinion.
Without hesitation they will forewarn.
They are prepared to go into the deep end
Thank God for your family today and make sure you behave like Paul’s nephew.
