Grace After Meals
The Birkas Hamazon - Grace After Meals - is a song of
gratitude toward the Almighty. Many people think that since we
have eaten, we must make a blessing. But actually the
opposite is true: The whole purpose of eating is so we should
review the concepts found in Birkas Hamazon! Every time you
eat, it's a new opportunity to recognize the kindness the
Almighty bestows upon you.
Today, after eating a meal, reflect on how wonderful it is that
you have food. Imagine the relief and pleasure you would
experience if you were stuck someplace for two days without
food... and then you had this meal!
