And when they measured it by the omer, the one who gathered much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little. Everyone had gathered just as much as they needed.

– Exodus 16:18 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor,

As the manna (food) from heaven descended upon the Israelites, the impulse was to stockpile God’s provision, but there is no reason to hoard the gifts of God. God is abundantly generous, yet even in His provision, He reminds us that He is faithful to give us what we need everyday. Our selfish hearts want security, but God keeps us in a posture of receiving from Him daily. In other words, He wants us to keep looking to Him, and not to His blessing.
