Odd that this should be here tonight! We just talked about this story today. Our youth finished a 30-hour famine today and our devotions throughout the time focused on different hunger stories. We talked about how whiney the Israelites were, not appreciating the nourishment that God provided.
This is why Jesus said, "You shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth from God!" They rejected His voice at the mountain and now complain He does audibly speak. He provides food so that "Men did eat Angels Food" yet they long for the 'leeks and onions of Egypt."Now, we look at our own flesh...are we better than a Israelite? Thankfully, we are in Christ not in Preformance!
