Bible Verse:
Meaning:
Manna from heaven is an unexpected but very needed gift.
Origin and Application:
Moses was the prophet chosen by God to lead the people of Israel out of Egypt. Two months after the Israelites left Egypt, they began grumbling against Moses and Aaron who brought them out of Egypt because they had no food in the desert. God had compassion on the Israelites, and rained down bread like morning dew from heaven for them. When the Israelites saw the land was covered by thin flakes, they asked, “What is it?” The bread looked like coriander seed and tasted like wafers made with honey. People called the bread manna, meaning “What is it?” in Hebrew. Manna from the heaven become the daily food for the supplies of Israelites during the wilderness years. Today, it means a very much needed, unexpected and timely gift that helps a situation.
