In his book, Just Walk Across the Room, Bill Hybels shares a portion of a letter he received from a worker at a restaurant that said, “Please let me convey a few things about Christians from a non-Christian waiter’s perspective . . . It’s quite well-known among waitstaff that when tables of Christians get seated in your section, it will be anything but a positive experience. Christians are demanding. They tend to stay at tables for a long time. They often try to push literature. And they rarely tip generously.”

As I read this quote, I thought song we used to sing around the campfire when I was a teenager—“They will know we are Christians by our love. . .”
Philippians 1:27 (NLT) (27) Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ. Then, whether I come and see you again or only hear about you, I will know that you are standing side by side, fighting together for the faith, which is the Good News.
