“What is it?” – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

Scripture: Exodus 16: 2-15


When the people of Israel were wandering in the wilderness after their escape from Egypt, they fell on some hard times. They needed food and they were complaining. Some thought maybe it would have been better to stay in captivity rather than face the hardships of the desert life. In our Scripture reading this week, God provides for their needs through manna and quail sent down from heaven and their response is, “What is it?” As we consider their response, we’ll ask the question, “How do we recognize God’s provision in our lives?”
