God's Wake Up Call

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers,
got together to visit their old university professor.
Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering 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, crystal,
some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite -
telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

God's Wake Up Call Coffee Cups

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the
professor said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking
expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain
and cheap ones. While it is 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 drink.

Coffee Cup

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup,
but you consciously went for the best cups... And then
you began eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money
and position in 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 life we live.

Coffee Cups God's Wake Up Call

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to
enjoy the coffee God has provided us."

God brews the coffee, not the cups..........
Enjoy your coffee! "
