Life is like a cup of coffee!

A group of Alumni, highly established in their careers, they got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation turns into cmplaints about stress in work and life.

Offerring his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups; porcelain, plastic, glass, crystals.. Some expensive.., some exquisite...
Telling them to help themselves to the coffee. When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said; .." if you noticed that all the nice looking expensive cups have been taken up, leaving the plain and cheap ones.  While its normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress!

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee . In most cases, it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drinks. What all you really wanted was coffee not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups. And then you begin eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this:
Life is the coffee...
The jobs, money and positions in the society are the cups.
They are just tools to hold and contain life and the type of cup we have does not define nor change the quality of the life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cups, we fail to enjoy the coffee!

Savor the coffee..
Not the cups!

The happiest people don't HAVE the best of everything, they just MAKE the best of everything!

Love Generously
Care Deeply
Speak Kindly 

May the God of hope fill you with all the joy and peace as you trust in Him.
