My husband and I looked at one another questioningly. “Sure, why not?” I replied. After all, it had been a long time since he and I had been on a date without the children. We lingered over our meal, chatted, and laughed, then finally realized it was time to call for our check.
When our bill arrived, we were shocked. Not only had each cup of coffee cost a whopping seven dollars, but we’d each been charged for two. The refills hadn’t even been free. There were no bottomless cups here.
Do you ever feel that you’ve held your life’s cup out for a free refill and got gypped? King David said that his “cup overflows”, but sometimes I wonder about mine. Maybe the key is knowing clearly what is included in God’s bottomless cup.
