PostSubject: God's Coffee   Fri Jan 05, 2007 9:31 pm

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.

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. 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. 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!
"The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just
make the best of everything."
