Throwback Saturday: Christ’s Coffee

Yep, you knew it was coming. Coffee is, after all, one of the Africa Boy pillars. It’s what keeps me (and probably you) sane. So, if you aren’t a coffee fan, dry your eyes and click that back button, because this post isn’t for you.

Christ’s Coffee: 4 Ways Coffee Makes You a Better Christian

Coffee

Yep, you knew it was coming. Coffee is, after all, one of the Africa Boy pillars. It’s what keeps me (and probably you) sane. So, if you aren’t a coffee fan, dry your eyes and click that back button, because this post isn’t for you.

Coffee does make you a better Christian. Of course, I’m sure an argument could be made for tea, but in all honesty, I think that tea just makes you a better person in general. Coffee, however, is one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind (the full list includes bacon, chocolate, and hamburgers), and thus deserves our utmost respect. After all, there are four ways it makes you and me better Christians.

  1. Coffee keeps our tired minds clear. In a day and age that is all work and no play, Coffee is Jack’s drink. After a long, hard day of study, one of the best experiences life can offer is a few minutes alone with a steaming cup of coffee and a Bible. It clears our minds, invigorates our limbs, and gives us a new purpose in life!
  2. Coffee is so unique, it draws our attention to God’s creation. While artificial flavors can be found in any store, coffee is unique because the flavor is hard to mimic. And, not only is it unique, but it’s difficult to process and roast, causing many to wonder how the ancient Arabs discovered this heavenly drink. Certainly, it was an act of God. As you drink your coffee, don’t forget to thank God for that wonderful drink!
  3. Coffee gives us energy! Sure, Coca-Cola or Red Bull can do that too, but they’re jam-packed with sugar and artificial flavors. Coffee is todo natural. Coffee gives us enough energy to make it to the end of the day, allowing us to praise God that we made it through another trashy day. When a day is long or boring, a good cup of coffee (and a burst of energy) is often just the thing needed to bring a smile back on your face.
  4. Coffee is the perfect drink to take to church. While tea can be boring and water just watery, Coffee is always just that: coffee. What better drink to take into God’s building? And, for that matter, what better drink to sip on while you listen to God’s word? Just saying, there’s a reason that 90% of all American churches offer coffee, not tea. Maybe God ordained that, maybe not.

Well, that’s all the coffee for today. Hopefully, by the end of this post, you were salivating and craving a good cup of Joe. If not, you aren’t human (kidding).

But First, Coffee

Coffee

Most mornings, I wake up to a vibration on my wrist. My FitBit (a knockoff, mind you) has an alarm function that, instead of beeping, vibrates to wake you up. Sleeping in a room with two brothers, I find it helpful to have an alarm that will only wake me up. So, I often find myself waking up before anyone else, save for my parents.

Hey! We’re back with our weekly award- my second Random Acts of Kindness Award! Thank you so much, Jesusluvsall for the award! Guys, his blog is so encouraging, you have to check it out here.

Here are the rules.

  1. Tell who nominated and why
  2. Copy and share the picture that shows the award, posted above
  3. Share a paragraph of something that impacted your own life in the way of receiving kindness or how you extended kindness to someone else
  4. Nominate anyone or share to your own page. If you choose to participate, Tag or pingback to the original person who nominated you.

I’ve already done the first and second, so now onto the third and fourth.

Hmm, a random act of kindness. Let me think… Alright, I’ve got it.

Nine months ago, my family and I went back to the USA for a brief Christmas visit. While in the USA, we split our time between Saint Albans, West Virginia and Chicago, Illinois. My mom came from Chicago, so we spent time with her parents (my grandparents), then went down to West Virginia, where my dad’s parents live. Now, even though it was close to Christmas, I still had classes at the online school, Veritas Scholars Academy. I decided to do them at a nearby coffee shop, Coal River Coffee. So, early Tuesday morning, I found myself doing the class in a coffee shop. Halfway through the class, I was startled by a tap on my shoulder. Looking up, I saw a smiling waitress holding a steaming cup of coffee. Having been at the coffee shop many times, they knew that I love black coffee, and they had decided to give me a free cup, knowing that I didn’t have any money (it’s funny but true). Thus, I was able to do class while drinking a free cup of quality coffee.

Ok, let me clarify something. I don’t just tell stories about people giving me free drinks (see my Random Acts of Kindness post, found here). I promise I have more stories than that. However, these simple acts of giving me free drinks have stuck with me, and I will never forget that simple act of love.

Alright, now to tag someone. I nominate pkadams, found here. Have fun!

As always, guys, thanks for reading! I truly appreciate your support and hope you have a wonderful day.
