Soul Food

“We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

John 6:27

“Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.”

Jesus tells us that there is more important nourishment than the food that fuels the body.

There is spiritual nourishment that fuels the soul.

The body, though important and in need of the proper nourishment, will eventually wither and die.

The soul will not die…but go on.

What do you do to nourish your soul?

The earliest movement that was following Jesus was called “the Way” because Jesus had shown them the way of life.

It was a way that led to abundant life now…a life full of promise, peace and happiness.

That doesn’t mean it was idyllic…no…far from it.

There was adversity from those who didn’t like this “Way” that called for all people to be accepted, treated fairly and loved.

But it was a Way of freedom from attachments to things that didn’t last and offered no true fulfillment.

If you want food that endures…feast on the words of Jesus.

Mull over them.

Let them ruminate in your heart and lead you to your true life.
