Exodus 16:4 says’ Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.
Yesterday’s Trivia Question: How many books are in the bible? The answer is 66 books.. I want to thank Lafetteangel for her participation in the trivia.
Last night in my studying I am reading Exodus chapter 16, the story is about how God sent manna down from heaven to feed them. But what really made me think was how God gave instruction to them. He told them that they are to only collect enough for their families and not collect more than what they needed. He also told them that they are to honor the sabbath which meant they aren’t to go out doing any type of work. See what happen was they didn’t listen to God, they started collecting for the next day and they ended up hiding it. As if God didn’t see what they had done. The bread that they hid started to smell and it wasted away. My question is what made them collect more than what God had instructed them? Did they not believe that God would rain bread down from heaven for them to eat?
As I continue to read the story it said that those who only collected a little amount God increased theirs and they all had enough for their families. Today I want you to think about what would you do now knowing that God gives you your daily bread? Are you going to harbor on what God gives you today by not trusting that He will give you bread tomorrow?
