Magical Moment 477, "By Their Fruits"

Recently I was out with some friends and we ran into someone I hadn't seen in over a year. He is a music producer with a great deal of success in NYC. I worked as his  intern for a very brief time when I first moved here, and was actually surprised that he remembered me so well. 

As we all got reacquainted, my friends mentioned a play they're working on called Children of God, to which my former producer boss asked, 
"Are you all Christians too? I know she is," as he pointed at me. 
There was no mocking tone. He asked with genuine interest, almost admiration. And it completely took me by surprise because I'm almost certain we never directly discussed that issue when I worked for him. 

I took it as an enormous compliment. I have no idea what I did in the short weeks that we worked together to make him "know" I was a Christian. But I must try and find out, and then do more of it.

"Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?" 
-Matthew 7:16
