When Paul visited Athens, his message received multiple reactions. Some mocked, some wanted to hear more, and others believed.
The middle group is interesting. We often miss this group. We tend to push for a conviction. We want people to respond and commit at that moment.
Leaders should be more receptive to the reality that some people need to hear us again concerning the message.
Some people need to digest the message. The message may be far different from what they expected. It may be convicting, but it may be self-condemning.
Reflect and ask if a return visit allows for revisiting the teaching and further study.
