After several years of living a life minimizing animal product consumption, veganism has started to play a larger role in my relationship with Jesus and with scripture. There are many gems of scripture that reference treatment of animals and food. There is an invitation in scripture to a way of peace even with what we eat. This invitation is not judgemental or directive, for all are still under the grace of Jesus Christ, but we can choose to lean into a heavenly way of peace, even with what we eat.
Scripture: Genesis 1:9-13 and Isaiah 11:1-10
