As a result of poor planning, a man needed some same-day dry cleaning before he left on a trip. He remembered one store with a huge sign, "One-Hour Dry Cleaners," on the other side of town, so he drove out of his way to drop off a suit.

After filling out the tag, he told the clerk, "I need this in an hour." She said, "I can't get this back to you until Thursday."

"I thought you did dry cleaning in an hour?" No," she replied, "That's just the name of the store."

Those of us who carry the name "Christian", but fail to act like the One whose name we bear, create confusion and disillusionment for those who have yet to believe.

Are you Christian in name only???
