Morning Meditation – Food, Marvelous Food!

He almost looks drunk on his food, doesn’t he?

I think we would all agree with my sentiments…we love food. It means more to us than survival. It’s joy and the center of human bonding. It gives meaning to our day as we fantasize about our next culinary experience. It sets the very atmosphere for every holiday and celebration. Food calls to us like no other pursuit…for we know, it will grant us access to an experience that will transform our daily grind from weariness to joy.

After the miraculous feeding the 5,000, Jesus points out the dilemma of being driven by this very natural and God-given desire with where life truly comes. Jesus said, “Do not labor for food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which theSon of Man will give to you. For on Him, God the Father has set His seal.” (John 6:27, ESV)

Set your heart, today, to discover a hunger beyond your natural instincts. As good as it is to enjoy creation in all its glory, the Father has also wired you with living soul. It too hungers and longs to be set free by pleasures that can only be found from an eternal source.

Don’t let your soul starve. Feed and fuel it with eternal things; and then, you will always have a joy that surpasses your daily experience.

    Taste and see that the Lord is good. I love this scripture! A true satisfaction comes from His goodness. He overwhelms the natural senses like a big thanksgiving turkey feast and He overwhelms the spirit man when He gives us what is only a single glimpse, a hint, of His being and nature.

  2. This is truly something worth pondering!
    We can not survive without food; our bodies require it (maybe not in the context of which we know how to enjoy it). Jesus knows this; He was there at creation. Yet, He calls us to place our attention, resources, and passion, to things which feed our soul. Therefore, I believe, the mere method of survival (eating) becomes the conduit to feeding our soul (sharing it with others); storing treasures in heaven.

    Continuing to ponder…Jesus.
