Enjoy The Coffee

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 but 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, 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 began eyeing each other's cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee, and 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!
