This week Bobby and Amy talk about Exodus 16:1-18, the story of manna in the wilderness. We’re only 6 weeks out of slavery in Egypt, and already the people are anxious about where their next meal is going to come from. We talk about the pernicious power of economies of accumulation, which convince us that there is not enough, turning our neighbors into competitors. We talk about the nature of miracles and the contrast between the pillar of fire in the Exodus and today’s thin layer of dusty bread that prompts the people to say, “What is that?” And we think about the ways God’s provision is like a locking Tupperware container. You’ll just have to trust on that one.
