Immediate Roadblocks

What is the immediate, pressing need that [we] those around us first must deal with before [we] they will be ready to truly hear the Gospel?

In what ways does [our] their drive for achievement at [our] their work or at [our] their hobbies drive [us] them to places of exhaustion that leave [us] them open to compromise?

How can we guard against [their] manipulating [us] others to further our [their] own cause, knowing that God is concerned with the justice of our [their] ways (Pr 16:11, 17:5)?
