I read something the other day that touched my heart and I wanted to share it with you.
Imagine that you’re holding a cup of coffee and someone comes along and bumps into you, making your coffee spill everywhere. Coffee came out of your cup because that’s what was in it.
That is why it’s so important that we fill our cups with love, patience, respect, and inclusion. Because if our cup is filled with hate, bitterness, anger, or judgement, those nasty things are what will spill out when someone comes along and bumps into us.
We may even accidentally burn that person with the contents of our cup. And we are guaranteed to burn ourselves.
Make sure to pay attention to what spills out when someone is shaken and rattled. Would you ask for a drink from their cup if you were thirsty? Would it make you feel better or worse?
What you carry inside is what will pour into the lives of the people around you.
If you need to, dump out that cup. Jesus will meet you at the well, ready to refill it with something pure and everlasting.
