Food for thought:
You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along bumping into you shaking your arm, which makes you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee? 🤔 “Well because someone bumped into me, of course!” Wrong answer. You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup.
Had there been tea in the cup, you would’ve spilled tea.
Whatever is inside the cup, will spill out.
Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It’s easy to fake it, until you get rattled.
So we need to ask ourselves… “what’s in my cup?” When life gets tough, what spills over?
Joy, gratefulness, peace, and humility?
Or, anger, bitterness, harsh words, and bad reactions?
Today lets work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation; and kindness, gentleness, and love for others.
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
