Meals can be opportunities for divine revelation
John 21:1-14. Jesus reveals Himself post-resurrection in a breakfast with disciples
Meals can be opportunities for divine revelation. Come to think of it: the food we eat are great evidences of how entangled we are with society and the world. Imagine the infinite number of things that have to go right for us to eat a delicious meal – from the farmers who cultivated the crop and the meat, to the business which procured the ingredients, and the cooks who manipulate heat and chemistry to deliver a scrumptious experience.
It is fitting that we say graces and gratitudes before meals, because when we deeply reflect about it, the food we eat is an evidence of how beautiful and complex God’s love can manifest in something we simply put in our mouths.
