God, by nature, is a self-giver.
Women, by nature, are also self-givers.
Women’s bodies were created to give life, and their personalities and characters also align with this self-giving mission.
Research shows over and over that if women and girls are invested in, they tend to reinvest in their communities and those near and dear.
Also, in my poll Self-sucking?, the majority response has been along the lines of “no, it’s not for me to indulge, as my milk was given to me to serve my husband and enhance our relationship.”
That women’s bodies make food that nourishes others only keeps fascinating me and leaving me in awe.
In the incarnation, God became personally, intimately and physically involved in his creation. In the same way, women desire to be intimately involved with their husbands by feeding them the milk their bodies make.
And what do godly ANR-seeking women like Jeanne and K say? Both express similar desires to have a famished and stressed out man find solace and reinvigoration by feeding from their beautiful, powerful, ethereal, divine, God’s-image-bearing femininity.
Christ is the gift that keeps on giving. As we celebrate this season of Advent, let’s reflect on the true meaning of grace, and give generously to our spouses and loved ones.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
