Acts 18:20 “When they asked him to spend more time with them, he declined.”
(Paul had already decided that God wanted him to go to the Gentiles and not just the Jews. At Ephesus he went into the synagogue, as was his practice and he had good results as the Jews were receptive).
Decline man for God.
Decline time that you don’t have.
Decline need for purpose.
Decline success for obedience.
