Looking Like a Christian

A little old Jewish lady was flying out of New York City on her way to Miami Beach. When she looked at the businessman sitting next to her and asked him, “Excuse me sir, but are you Jewish?”

The man responded politely, “No, ma'am, I’m not Jewish.”

After a little while she again asked him. “You’re really Jewish, aren’t you?”

Again he answered, “No, ma'am, I am not Jewish.”

Barely 10 minutes later, the little old lady asks him once more, “Are you sure you’re not Jewish?”

To which, in frustration and in a final effort to shut her up, he replied, “OK. Yes, ma'am, I am Jewish.”

“Funny,” she says, looking puzzled. “You don’t look Jewish!”

And this makes me wonder; if anyone looked and asked, “Are you a Christian?” and got the answer, “Yes", would they be inclined to say, “Funny, you don’t look like a Christian”?

Can anyone tell?

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 5:14-16, KJV)

Do you look like a Christian?
