v. 32: Jesus was sustained fully by doing the will of the Father. Even when the disciples brought Him food, He still didn‚Äôt eat it.
Our bodies were not made to live on food.
The body likes food, just like it likes sex, but it wasn‚Äôt MADE for that. Every culture has their own ideas as to what dinner looks like. I had south African friends that couldn‚Äôt BELIEVE how much food we ate. I had friends from Finland that couldn‚Äôt believe what a HUGE breakfast we americans would eat, and then in just 4 hours or so eat lunch again! They would wake up and snack on bread, then snack midday on bread, then have a big meal at night. (and people can say what they want about even-sized meals and weight loss, but the Fins aren‚Äôt known for being overweight.)
I think we‚Äôve been taught by our culture that our body NEEDS certain things, that the Bible actually shows that we don‚Äôt really need. All the more to distract us from what we REALLY need: to do what God wants, and complete His work.
