We all know about the Last Supper and its importance, yet we never hear talk about breakfast from the religious side of things. The term breakfast is break and fast placed together, in which to mean breaking fast. Jesus himself thought of breakfast as a very important meal to be eaten.
“Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”—knowing that it was the Lord.”
John 21:12 NKJV
The point of breakfast we all should know is that it is meant for is to break our fast be it a night of sleep or a fast that last for days. Breakfast is the meal we are suppose to eat to do this. It is the meal that represents renewal, a meal that is meaning to bring us into the new day.
One thing families need to do more is eat breakfast together and pray at the start of the day. It is a meal to speak life and make promises for that day. It is a meal that rivals supper in making bonds. Later in John 21 we hear Jesus declare to Simon Peter to “Feed his Lambs”.
“So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.””
John 21:15 NKJV
Reading in the New Testament you will even see where a fig tree in the morning was without fruit and was dried up due to that. Why, simple in the morning we have gone without food for several hours and our body craves those nutritens of the food. We are what we put into our bodies as well, if you put frozen pre made food you will be slow and dragging all day compared to oatmeal or eggs freshly cooked.
“Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, “Let no fruit grow on you ever again.” Immediately the fig tree withered away.”
Matthew 21:18-19 NKJV
So remember to get up and make some breakfast and break your fast every day. Start off with nutritional food and nutritional prayer. If you have a wife or a wife and kids or just kids speak life into them, feed them on love and value of a home cooked breakfast.
