The Refreshment of Onesiphorus

Artwork for Character Counts: Building a Life That Pleases God

Our thoughts turn to one of the lesser-known people in Scripture. A man whose fame was eclipsed by Paul's, but he played a vital role in the life of his better-known counterpart. His name? Onesiphorus, pronounced “Oh-neh-SIF-ah-russ.” His contribution in character? Refreshment…that rare yet wonderful ability to give breathing room, to provide cooling relief, to help in the healing process. How we need such people today!
