What’s in your Cup

“Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,”

(Philippians 2:5 ESV)

“A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

(Proverbs 17:22 ESV)

I saw this on Facebook and thought I would share it: 

“You are holding a cup of coffee when someone bumps into you, making you spill your coffee. 

Why did you spill your coffee?

Because someone bumped into me. 

Wrong answer.

You spilled your coffee because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been tea, you would have spilled tea. Whatever is in your cup is what spilled out.

Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you, which will happen, whatever is inside of you will come out. It’s easy to fake it until you make it.

So we have to ask ourselves…what’s in my cup?

When life gets tough, what spills out? Joy, gratitude, peace, and humility? Anger, bitterness, victim mentality, and quitting tendencies?

Life provides the cup, and you choose how to fill it.” (Author unknown)

What do you choose to put in your cup? I choose joy, gratitude, humility, peace, and happiness. Life is so much better when you spread happiness and joy.

Have a great day, everyone.
