Activity 3: Our Daily Bread (10 minutes), Workshop 3: Manna in the Wilderness

In "Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures," a Tapestry of Faith program

Description of Activity

Invite participants to discuss some of these questions:

  • What do we learn about God in the story? What were the writers trying to tell us about God?
  • Why did God only give them enough manna to make bread for one day at a time most days?
  • Why did the shares end up equal even if one person took more than another? What point was the writer trying to make?
  • Why did he give them enough for two days on the day before the Sabbath? Why was a day of rest so important?
