A group of former students visited their former university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints of pressure at work and stress. The professor offered his guests coffee. Returning from the kitchen, the professor brought a large pot of coffee and assortment of cups: plastic, glass, crystal, etc., some expensive some cheap. He told his guests to help themselves to coffee. When all former students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: "If u noticed, all the expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the cheap and plain ones. While it is only normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. Be assured the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is only more expensive. What all of you really wanted was the 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 positions in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life. 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 cup. Enjoy the coffee. The happiest people do not have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything. Live simply, love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
