According to some articles of Jesus, expressed 21 centuries ago, supermarkets are a human replica of the kingdom of God. They find food and clothing.
Humans are omnivorous animals, meaning that, like pigs and baboons, we feed with organic substances of animal and plant origin.
Wild animals, those living loose, without a master to watch them, watch them and use them, solved their feeding wandering the places where they can find food: meadows, forests, rivers.
Humans would enjoy being hunters and gatherers and wild animals, perhaps because it was our earliest specimens of the species or because they prefer not currently have a master to monitor us, we care and use.
Self service providers attract customers by offering a replica of those origins. At your local we can take what we find there, as perhaps happened with the first humans.
It is likely, then, that those who prefer to stock up at a supermarket we are encouraged by an ancient hope that goes back thousands of years.
The self-service systems also seem capable fantasize that Jesus proposed that copying transcribe them the Gospel of Matthew:
"Behold the fowls of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are ye not much better than they? And which of you by being anxious much, add to his stature one cubit? And the dress, why are you anxious? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of them. And if the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, God clothes, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore you do not be anxious, saying, What shall we eat or what shall we drink, or what to wear? For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added. So, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof".
In short, Jesus According to these recommendations, expressed last 21 centuries, supermarkets are a human replica of the kingdom of God. In it we find food and clothing.
The need to pay before leaving the kingdom of God is a requirement of our heavenly Father a few centuries ago.
