Breast Milk is Next to Godliness

It has been said that cleanliness is next to godliness. Many a religion has promoted this concept which has variations of  meanings that adapt and adjust to individual perceptions. I’ve always taken it to stress emphasis on the importance of physical hygiene, which undoubtedly is valuable to our health and comfort…and I suppose, the comfort of others.  This comparison of cleanliness and godliness attaches a religious note to imply acceptance in the eyes of God comes only by being clean. At first thought, conceptually this may make perfect sense to some, however Christ had this to say…
But those things which  proceed out of the mouth come forth  from the heart ; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil  thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are [the things] which defile a man: but  to eat with unwashen  hands defileth  not  a man. – Matthew 15:18-20 KJV
I was in my kitchen, bustling about when I had a thought. Breast milk cannot be duplicated. In spite of the simple fact that many things in nature are duplicated by science. Cloning and GMOs are hot topics of debate. Shelves in stores are lined with duplicated foods that mimic health, by excessive processing. Drugs are created to help us birth, live, eat and breathe. In a whirl of faux pas, breast milk stands untouched.
I can compare breast milk to the  promise God made to Israel. He promised to deliver them from Egypt, from under the rule and slavery or Pharaoh. He would deliver them and bring them to a land flowing with milk and honey.
And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring  them up out of that land unto a good  land  and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey… ~ Exodus 3: 8
He delivered them same way a baby is delivered from the confines of the womb to arrive, immediately after birth to it’s “land” that flows with sweet milk. Giving it authentic health, wellness and protection…unrivaled, untouched by science. Now, and in the future.  The intention to provide flowing milk by a loving God is an intention of love and care. There’s no doubt in my mind that breast milk indeed is next to godliness.
