There are some that are of the opinion that Christians should not drink coffee. However, as far as I can tell scripture does not talk about coffee (or caffeine) at all.
Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen and understand. What goes into someone’s mouth does not defile them, but what comes out of their mouth, that is what defiles them.” – Matthew 15:10-11
Therefore, do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink – Colossians 2:16a
When I am given a writing prompt, I try not to read anyone else’s work until I have at least come up with an idea or outline for my own piece. But today I couldn’t help myself. I read everything that my fellow Five Minute Friday bloggers were writing about COFFEE.
Was it because I have had too much coffee? Not enough coffee? Or am I just obsessed with that magical black elixir?
Now I am not a “purist” who drinks strong black dark roast coffee, that is more my husband’s style. My preference is a medium to light roast flavored coffee paired with liquid creamer. I try to have several types of coffee and creamer on hand, that way I can create a variety of potions to keep me going.
Sharing my heart over a steaming cup of mud is one of my favorite pastimes. Following that logic, it stands to reason that having a cuppa with Jesus would be a high priority for me.
I have my first cup (or two) of java during my morning quiet time. I may or may not have an additional cup or two of joe throughout the day. Now before you get all health conscious on me, yes. I know that coffee is a diuretic. And yes, I offset my coffee habit with 80-90 ounces of water per day.
