Not By Bread Alone

Parshat Eikev (Deuteronomy 7:12-11:25)

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/torah_portion/article/not_by_bread_alone_20070803

The milchama with lechem stops when we can eat it proportionately and spiritually. When we enjoy our fill -- rather than demonizing, avoiding or sinfully binging on it -- we are redeemed. By the mouth of God, bread was created, as was light, as were we, in His image. Our purest source of nourishment is Divine love, manifest in our capacity to lift up the vital force in all foods through our own utterances of gratitude.
