A Thanksgiving Meal for Your Soul

Posted by Pastor Rob on November 22, 2013

As you and your family gather around the table this holiday season, stuffing yourself as we all do with more things than we stuff the Thanksgiving turkey remember, that there is only one source of food that will fully suffice us for all eternity. That is "the bread of life that has come from heaven". In the Old Testament when the children of Israel wandered in the desert for 40 years, God sustained his people. Each and every morning, "manna" was given to them by God: to gather, to prepare, and to eat. (God has always provided for us but it does take some effort on our part – He usually doesn't serve us breakfast in bed) This kind of physical food indeed sustains our bodies and is needed daily. God knows that! We pray and he responds – "give us our daily bread".
