Quail and Manna for Dinner


When our children were small, my wife and I used to tell them at dinnertime, “You get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit!”  Ever hear that one?  Well do you ever get “hangry” when you are hungry and what is served doesn’t quite match up to your expectations?  I do! 


This week we learn how God provides for us during mealtimes and how we are to respond when those provisions are meager.  We are also encouraged to be grateful for what is put before us and not grumble like the Israelites did in the wilderness.  Why?  Because Jesus often shows up as we share meals with others and because of that we ought to keep our “hangryness” in check.
