COMMON GROUND

Have you ever met someone who you felt you had nothing in common with? Where do you begin or is it best to just walk away? Paul found himself amongst foreigners who had many strange beliefs. He walked through their garden full of idols set up as false gods for worship. He stumbled upon one altar with an inscription to an "Unknown God" (Acts 17:23).  Rather than walk away and judge the Greek citizens for their misguided beliefs, Paul managed to establish Common Ground. He said, "The God you are confused about is the one I am going to proclaim to you." Then he used this as an opportunity. Instead of burning bridges with people he had very little in common with, he built a bridge and shared the love of Christ with those who had never heard about it. How do you and I build common ground with those we do not share much in common with?
