As much as you want it to be true, it really is not –
Coffee is not a food group.
Knowing how highly you regard this brownish-black goodness (with or without cream), I cannot presume to know all that this revelation could be doing to your mind right now.
And knowing how seriously you take this coffee business, I really do hope you take a moment to really consider the import of this new thing you’ve learned.
I would tell you what it meant for me:
I do not need coffee as much as I think I do.
But then, again, I never took coffee as seriously as you did!
But I did take some things as seriously –
And generally, everything else that took away from my devotion to God.
You know what I found?
Apart from God’s Word, I do not need anything else to do life successfully.
So when I find I’m starting to be dependent on anything else, it could mean I need to retrace my steps, and return to the feet of Jesus. There I receive His Word, and power for life and living.
As much as your devotion to this brownish-black life saver (to your mind at least!) is admirable (as loyalty is not a virtue that’s easy to come by these days), I really do hope you step aside just long enough to gain new perspectives and see for yourself that, truly, coffee is not a food group.
…It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Matthew 4:4.
