Grande or Venti?

I guess you know you have truly "arrived" when your quote lands on the side of a Starbucks cup. For Rick Warren, his day has come! We've all seen our good friend, Rick Warren, in a lot of places lately. Because of the run away success of his book, The Purpose Driven Life, we have seen him in Time Magazine, the Larry King Live Show and countless other places. Well now he has landed on the side of our beloved Starbucks cup!

That's right, come spring we should be seeing on the side of our cups...

"You are not an accident. Your parents may not have planned you, but God did. He wanted you alive and created you for a purpose. Focusing on yourself will never reveal your real purpose. You were made by God and for God, and until you understand that, life will never make sense. Only in God do we discover our origin, our identity, our meaning, our purpose, our significance and our destiny."

Prehaps this is due in part to the ill-thought decision Starbucks made recently to put the Armistead Maupin quote, "life is too damn short to hide being gay." on the side of their cups. Come on Starbucks you can do better than that! I guess now they have!

You must see this USA Today article. All I can say, is You go Rick!

I hope someone who reads their Starbux cup actually thinks about the quote. You never know what a difference it can make to someone to hear that they are not a mistake, that they are loved and cherished.

The thing is, and what I think is so cool, is Rick sent in that quote because Starbucks was asking for them! I remember seeing the call for "stuff" on the cups.

I remember seeing that as well. Good for Rick. More of us should have done the same.

He took a great opportunity to share the Gospel in a creative way to many, many people!
