Romans 16:1–2 (ESV)
Personal Greetings
16 I commend to you our sister Phoebe, a servant of the church at Cenchreae, 2 that you may welcome her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints, and help her in whatever she may need from you, for she has been a patron of many and of myself as well.

This paragraph seem insignificant, but it may be a window into the deliverer of this letter.  It is quite possible that Phoebe, a sister in Christ, was the one who delivered this letter.  Paul wants her treated right, in a way that is worthy of saints, or that is believers.  She may have given financial assistance or other assistance to the church.  It may seem insignificant, but she is mentioned for her part, no matter how big or small, in spreading the Gospel.  What if this letter never reached it’s destination?  We need to take seriously our role in spreading the Gospel and serving the Lord.

I pray: O Lord, help me to serve you with joy, and take my service seriously.  Use me as an instrument to carry out your will.  Forgive me when I grumble or get distracted.  Amen.
