If you’re like me you love food—I like to cook, and I certainly like to eat good meals. But Lorenzo Scupoli gives us the secret for truly appreciating what we eat:

When you eat or drink, reflect that it is God, Who gives all food a taste which pleases us. So, delighting in Him alone, say: ‘Rejoice, O my soul, for, although you can find no satisfaction, delight or comfort in anything outside God, you can know Him and cleave to Him, and can find every delight in Him alone, as David invites, saying: ‘O taste and see that the Lord is good’’ (Psalm 34:8).
