"You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere.

So why did you spill the coffee?

“Well because someone bumped into me, of course!”

 

Wrong answer.

You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup.

Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea.

*Whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out.*

Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which WILL happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It’s easy to fake it, until you get rattled.

*So we have to ask ourselves… “What’s in my cup?”

When life gets tough, what spills over?

Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility?

Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions?

You choose!

Today let’s work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation; and kindness, gentleness and love for others.

A friend posted this story on Facebook today.  With all that is going on in our world today, we seem so much stress and anger in people.  The pressures of society seem to weigh so heavily on everyone’s shoulders.  We get so caught up in what is happening around us that we lose sight of who we really are.

We are all children of God and are given love and forgiveness as a free gift.  No strings attached.  Allow this love and forgiveness to fill you to overflowing and spill a bit on those around you.

Here I stand; I cannot do otherwise, so help me God! Amen.
