Read Acts 25 today.

This chapter includes the story of Paul in prison, awaiting trial.
So much of this chapter seems like merely telling the story of what happened while Paul was in prison in Caesarea. Along with the passage of time, there were also changes in leadership. All the while, Paul waited in prison. As I think about Paul’s experience, it makes me take my own circumstances a little less seriously. It is not that the challenges I face today are of no consequence. Rather they are put into perspective. Paul waited in prison for over two years for his trial, with no real charges against him. Thinking of his experience makes walking across a cold parking lot seem a little less worthy of complaints.
I am sure each of us faces many challenges, and no challenge seem trivial in the moment. Let us maintain perspective, and know God is with us through it all.
Acts 24:1, 24, 27 NIV
Five days later the high priest Ananias went down to Caesarea with some of the elders and a lawyer named Tertullus, and they brought their charges against Paul before the governor.
[24] Several days later Felix came with his wife Drusilla, who was Jewish. He sent for Paul and listened to him as he spoke about faith in Christ Jesus.
[27] When two years had passed, Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus, but because Felix wanted to grant a favor to the Jews, he left Paul in prison.
Acts 25:1-2, 6, 13, 23 NIV
Three days after arriving in the province, Festus went up from Caesarea to Jerusalem, [2] where the chief priests and the Jewish leaders appeared before him and presented the charges against Paul.
[6] After spending eight or ten days with them, Festus went down to Caesarea. The next day he convened the court and ordered that Paul be brought before him.
[13] A few days later King Agrippa and Bernice arrived at Caesarea to pay their respects to Festus.
[23] The next day Agrippa and Bernice came with great pomp and entered the audience room with the high-ranking military officers and the prominent men of the city. At the command of Festus, Paul was brought in.
