A Isaac loved Esau because of physical meat

"And Isaac loved [and was partial to] Esau, because he ate of Esau’s game;"

Genesis 27:4 (Amplified Bible)

And prepare me appetizing meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat of it, [preparatory] to giving you my blessing [as my firstborn] before I die.

And Jacob said to his father, I am Esau your firstborn; I have done what you told me to do. Now sit up and eat of my game, so that you may proceed to bless me.

Genesis 27:25 (Amplified Bible)

Then [Isaac] said, Bring it to me and I will eat of my son’s game, that I may bless you. He brought it to him and he ate; and he brought him wine and he drank.

Esau had also prepared savory food and brought it to his father and said to him, Let my father arise and eat of his son’s game, that you may bless me.

Isaac is not that spiritual compared to her wife Rebekah who is more spiritual than him. Prioritize spiritual things over physical things. Prioritize the kingdom of GOD compared to the things of these earth.

For the Bread of God is He Who comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world.

Then they said to Him, Lord, give us this bread always (all the time)!

But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.

She has killed her beasts, she has mixed her [spiritual] wine; she has also set her table.

Matthew 22:2-4 (Amplified Bible)

The kingdom of heaven is like a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son

And sent his servants to summon those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they refused to come.

Again he sent other servants, saying, Tell those who are invited, Behold, I have prepared my banquet; my bullocks and my fat calves are killed, and everything is prepared; come to the wedding feast.
