OUR DAILY BREAD
How quickly we can forget the good things and dwell on the bad! In our first reading from Exodus, we hear the Israelites grumbling about their time in the desert after the Exodus. It seems they have already forgotten all that God just did for them as he lead them out of captivity.
But the Lord continues to provide – raining down bread from heaven, but there is a test as well – a test to see if they will follow the Lord’s instructions or not.
What are those instructions? To take only what you need for the day so that others may have their fill as well; and trust that God will provide for tomorrow.
