Breastfeeding in the Bible

‘For you will nurse and be satisfied at her comforting breasts; you will drink deeply and delight in her overflowing abundance.’ For this is what the LORD says: ‘I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.’ -Isaiah 66:11-13 NIV

I am amazed at how God has designed the way children are nurtured, nourished and comforted at their mother's breasts to reflect the same way He nurtures, nourished and comforts us.

I recommend this Breastfeeding Bible Study by Cyndi Egbert for both mothers and all Believers, as a way to understand God's nurturing care for us, His adopted sons.
