Scripture:
“Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: ‘People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship—and this is what I am going to proclaim to you.'” ~Acts 17:22-23

Observation:
Paul spends time in Athens observing the intellectual climate. He starts trying to convince them by finding something they already believe in that he can start his case with.

Application:
Every now and then I’ll have a conversation with someone who is not a Christian and I try to convince them to become one. How often do I take the time to learn what they already believe as a starting point?

Prayer:
Father, give me the wisdom of Paul. He listened and asked so that he would know where to start making his case. Help me to do the same.
