One of the ways to their hearts is through their stomachs. Especially if the food is delicious.
Food is a massive theme in the Bible. From the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden, to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, this central aspect of our lives is representative of our most basic needs and desires being fulfilled appropriately (by God and his ways) or rebelliously (by theft).
When you offer delicious food, you provide a gift that meets an intimate personal need. If it looks attractive, you meet a need for beauty. If it tastes delicious you provide pleasure.
This multidimensional generosity draws our lives together in powerful ways.
“I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.”John 6:51
