Tuesday

Read Exodus 16:9-15

9 Moses said to Aaron, “Tell the whole community to come and stand before the Lord, because he has heard their complaints.” 10 As Aaron spoke to the whole community, they turned toward the desert, and suddenly the dazzling light of the Lord appeared in a cloud. 11 The Lord said to Moses, 12 “I have heard the complaints of the Israelites. Tell them that at twilight they will have meat to eat, and in the morning they will have all the bread they want. Then they will know that I, the Lord, am their God.”

13 In the evening a large flock of quails flew in, enough to cover the camp, and in the morning there was dew all around the camp. 14 When the dew evaporated, there was something thin and flaky on the surface of the desert. It was as delicate as frost. 15 When the Israelites saw it, they didn't know what it was and asked each other, “What is it?”

Moses said to them, “This is the food that the Lord has given you to eat.

Think

Sometimes life feels like it is either famine or feast.  As the Israelites complain God hears their cries and sends them Manna and Quail.  In their surprise they ask: "What is it?"  Moses tells them:  "This is the food that the Lord has given you to eat."

Pray

In every circumstance help me to realise that the moment is a gift from you.  Let me enjoy every moment as such... "...the food that the Lord has given you to eat."
