Read Joshua 5:9-12


Read Joshua 5:9-12

9 The Lord said to Joshua, “Today I have removed from you the disgrace of being slaves in Egypt.” That is why the place was named Gilgal,[a] the name it still has.

10 While the Israelites were camping at Gilgal on the plain near Jericho, they observed Passover on the evening of the fourteenth day of the month. 11 The next day was the first time they ate food grown in Canaan: roasted grain and bread made without yeast. 12 The manna stopped falling then, and the Israelites no longer had any. From that time on they ate food grown in Canaan.


Joshua 5:9 This name sounds like the Hebrew for “removed.”

On the first Passover in the promised land the people ate food grown in Canaan.  God had moved them into a place of freedom - part of that freedom was the blessing of being able to provide for themselves and give thanks to God.


Lord let every meal, every blessing I receive - be a moment of holy celebration as I give thanks to you for all you have done for me.
