Moses instructed the people to gather the amount of manna that they needed, but to not keep any until morning. This seems like a simple instruction. But, some people kept some overnight and it rotted. The day before the Sabbath, they were to gather enough for two days. Again, some didn’t listen and went out on the Sabbath to gather manna, but it wasn’t there.
God gives us clear and simple instructions. Why do we sometimes refuse to listen, wanting to do things our own way? If we listen to our Lord and renew our minds by studying his word, we can discern his will, we can discover what is good and acceptable and perfect in his eye. Are you ready to follow his instructions?
