GOD MAKES THE COFFEE, MAN CHOOSES THE CUPS!
A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, were talking at
a reunion and decided to go visit their old university professor, now
retired. During their visit the conversation soon turned into complaints
about stress in their work and lives.
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 alumni had a cup of coffee in hand, the Professor said:
"Notice that 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; your job, money and
position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and
contain Life. The type of cup one has does not define, nor change the
quality of life a person lives. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the
cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee God has provided us"
God makes the coffee, man chooses the cups. The happiest people don't
have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
Enjoy your coffee.
