Napsal(a) New Christian Bible Study Staff
When we eat, our bodies break down the food and get from it both energy and materials for building and repairing the body.
The process is much the same on a symbolic level in the Bible. Food represents the desire for good and the insight that comes from that desire for good – goodness and understanding that come from the Lord. But to put them to use we have to take them in and make them our own – which is spiritual eating.
