Our Daily Bread

After the children of Israel had been led safely through the Red Sea, they journeyed into a wilderness where they were fed with "bread from heaven." It is recorded in Exodus that the Lord said unto Moses, "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." Those who gathered more than they needed found that by the following morning what had not been used was of no value, while a fresh supply of manna was theirs for the gathering.

Even after witnessing the destruction of the hosts of Pharaoh it was necessary for the children of Israel to preserve an active confidence in God and obey His laws in order to prove that He was the source of their supply as well as protection. Not understanding that the eternal God is the source of all true substance, mortals seek to provide for themselves by storing up materially; but during the present period of the world's progress many have been forced to realize the worthlessness and uncertainty of material things on which they had depended for supply.
