Acts 28

Acts 28:20
It is because of the hope of Israel that I am wearing this chain.

The hope of Israel that Paul is referring to is Jesus. And there were years that Paul traveled abroad, and there were times he was confined in prison. But whatever state he found himself in, he learned the art of contentment. This is where we leave Paul, the traveler extraordinaire: in a chain. This is our last view of the great apostle. However, we don’t find him angry, and we don’t find him bitter, we find him honored to have done it all for the hope of Israel and the entire world.
Thank you, Paul. May we all bear our chain with as much dignity and contentment as you.
