Non-Vegetarian food!

“Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. I have given you all things, even as the green herbs” (Genesis 9:3).

When God created Adam and Eve, He gave them vegetarian food only (Genesis 1:29). But after the days of Noah, He gave the Non-vegetarian food also in addition to the vegetarian food. “…….all that move on the earth, and on all the fish of the sea. They are given into your hand (Genesis 9:2).

God has graciously blessed man to eat the food of his liking matching his requirement. Some may like chicken. Some may like mutton. Some may like fish and some will get satisfied with mere vegetables.

Once, the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron and they said “Who will provide us non-vegetarian food to us in this wilderness? We would like to eat meat. Daily we are eating the manna and we are fed up with it.” When God heard this He blew a wind and the wind brought quails in plenty. The children of Israel ate to their full satisfaction.

God fed Elijah in three ways. Firstly, God gave him non-vegetarian food through the Ravens (I Kings 17:6). Secondly, God fed him through the widow of Zarephath. Neither the bin of flour nor the jar of oil ran dry for the whole stretch of famine (I Kings 17:13, 14). Thirdly God fed him through His Angel. What did the angel bring? It was a cake baked on coals and a jar of water (I Kings 19:6).

God will miraculously feed you and guide you. Jesus said “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things”(Mathew 6:31, 32).

Once, when Jesus Christ was living in this world, He fed five thousand persons with five loaves and two fish. During another instance, He fed four thousand persons with seven loaves and a few fish. Those fish which are non-vegetarian were multiplying. People ate to their satisfaction. Even after the Resurrection of Jesus, when the disciples had come to the shores of Tiberias …….. they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread” (John 21:9).

To meditate: “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world” (John 6:51).
