Food is love

Don’t you love being invited to someone’s home for a meal?

Bible reference(s): John 6:35

With all of the wonderful cuisines of the world, it can be an exciting proposition to go to someone’s home to eat. Many times it could be a journey into another culture.

Yet too many people, a meal is an opportunity to show their guests or family how they love them. Food can represent the heart of the one who serves it.

Interestingly, Jesus even showed us how food can represent love. He even defines himself at one point as “the bread of life.”

Within the Bible, we can see from the Passover meal to the simplicity of Jesus sharing bread and wine with his friends that food can be a beautifully gracious expression of God's love.
