DAILY READINGS: 1 Chronicles 13:1-14:17; Ezekiel 14:1-15:8; John 5:1-23

And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before the Lord, to be kept for your generations. Exodus 16:33

We know that this command was carried out by Aaron and the pot was eventually placed in the Ark of the Covenant. However there was no sign of it when the Ark was seen in Temple days. There may be a number of reasons for this, but from their future behaviour the children of Israel seemed to have forgotten about this miraculous provision for their wilderness journey. Let us—especially those living in the privileged west—never forget the daily temporal acts of kindness shown by our heavenly Father. —Brian Russell

God our maker doth provide, for our wants to be supplied.
Come to God’s own temple come, raise the song of harvest home. —Alford
