Coffee Cuppa

I recieve this article from a sister in Christ, I believe loving is sharing: Enjoy your cup of coffee & Have a great week ahead, May the Lord keep you & Bless you:-)

Coffee Cuppa:

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 hot coffee.

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 but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and were eyeing each other's cups. Now if life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change. Some times, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."

So, don't let the cups drive you... enjoy the coffee instead, especially for us, who have Lord in our hearts, "Fear not be glad and rejoice for the Lord will do great things in our lives" [Joel 2:21] Know it, proclaim it, and received it...

Enjoyed that, except I ran into trouble because I thought about how drinking a cup of coffee from a nice cup does actually taste better than in a bad cup. Think about it. Crystal with Starbucks versus styrofoam with Starbucks....but the point is right. This world is not going to last, but we are building up treasures for heaven. Let us put our heart into Christ and let us build up treasures for heaven, not for earth. God bless. (You have Starbucks there?)

Yes Sister Audrey,

The old rugged cross, Let's Sing:

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,

The emblem of suffering & shame; & I love that old cross where the dearest & best.

For a World of lost Sinners was slain...

So I cherish the old rugged cross...
Till my tropies at last I lay down;

I will cling to the old rugged cross, & exchange it some day for a crown...

Godwyn Lim said...

Yes Sister!

Singapore is a developed country, we have almost everything here:-)

Heaps of starbucks all around the island, though we are just like a dot on the World Map!

The good Gospel of Christ, our Lord is widely shared in Singapore blessing our country:-)

Thank you for sharing your view! The Cup or the Coffee...
