How heavy is a glass of water? 🥛

One day, a professor holds up a glass of water in front of the class. He asks everyone, “how heavy is this glass of water?”

A few students throw out guesses “8oz, 12oz, etc”…

The professor continues…

“The absolute weight of the glass doesn’t matter, it depends on how long I hold onto it.

If I hold it for a minute, nothing happens.

If I hold it for an hour, my arm will begin to ache.

If I hold it ALL DAY LONG, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed.

Even though the weight of the glass hasn’t changed, the longer I hold onto it, the heavier it becomes.

Well, the stresses and worries of life are like this glass of water.

If you stress and worry for a little while, there is no problem.

If you worry about things a little bit longer, it begins to hurt.

If you think about them ALL DAY LONG, you’ll feel paralyzed and incapable of doing anything!”

Always remember: Put the glass down.

Happy Sunday,
Love, Joel
