Great Analogy

You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and shoves you or shakes your arm, making you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee?

Cup of coffee - an analogy

“Well because someone bumped me, of course!”

Wrong answer.

You spilled the coffee because coffee was in the cup.

If tea had been in it, you would have spilled tea.

Whatever is inside the cup is what will come out.

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

So we have to ask ourselves…what is in my cup?

When life gets tough, what spills over?

Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility? or

Anger, bitterness, harsh words and actions?

You choose!

Today let us work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation to yourself and others.
