What is your favorite drink? Imagine I gave you a large cup filled to the brim. You take a sip and say, “Ah that’s good!” What are you drinking?

What happens if as you take the next sip someone unexpectedly runs into you like a linebacker hitting a running back or a five year old jumping into your lap? Whatever was in the cup is now all over you (and on the carpet too)!

We all know whatever you put into the glass is going to come out if it is upset.

You and I are just like that cup filled to the brim. Whatever is on the inside will come out when we get upset too!

We may try to do “damage control” and cover up some of our spills, but the damage is already done. Like hot coffee our words have sometimes burned our family and friends. Like ice we have chilled relationships. Like grape or tomato juice we have left a stain that can’t be cleaned. Whatever is on the inside will come out!
