Pastor Foley says that we will never find the “right moment” to share the gospel, if by right moment we mean that people are showing interest in Christ first. The Apostle Peter says that the sign of a “right opportunity” is precisely when people show no interest and then subsequently laugh at you after your initial proclamation. Pastor Foley also notes that Peter presumes that our proclamation will give plenty of time and attention to the second coming of Jesus, which is a subject that near zero percent of your hearers will want to consider. And this, says the Scripture, is the “right moment” for your proclamation.
