What Is God Teaching Me With The Laws Of Kosher?

Clearly, God gave us meat and all kosher food to give us pleasure in the world that He, God, created. God didn’t just give human beings food for pleasure. There was a deeper meaning involved. The food one eats not only affects how one acts, but if used correctly, can be used to channel one’s energy towards service of the Creator. After all, God created us and the food we eat, therefore, who are we to throw off the guidelines of how God told us to eat our food? Knowing this, every time a Jew takes a bite of kosher food, they know that God knows, that God created them with the need to eat, and accepts the action that they are doing with the utmost love. Besides the many lessons that one can internalize from the animals that Jews eat and don’t eat, it seems that is the essence of why God wants the Jews, his chosen people, to keep kosher.

Since the moment God gave the Torah to the Jewish people, keeping kosher has been an essential part of the Jewish home. Accordingly, the home is an essential part of a Torah lifestyle. What goes on in the home directly affects what goes on in the rest of one’s life. The question is, why kosher?
