Finally, God awareness

So Paul took his stand in the open space at the Areopagus and laid it out for them. "It is plain to see that you Athenians take your religion seriously. When I arrived here the other day, I was fascinated with all the shrines I came across. And then I found one inscribed, to the god nobody knows. I'm here to introduce you to this God so you can worship intelligently, know who you're dealing with."

Paul's message to this group was about God awareness. His audience was learned, like Paul. He used the group's own intelligence to pique their interest, then instructed in God awareness.

This month, I've faithfully posted about Stroke Awareness Month - and will do the same thing next year, God willing. It's important to know about stroke prevention and stroke symptoms. But even more important was Paul's message of God awareness. So to all: Be aware.
