Parent resources for Sunday August 19

There are genuinely sufficient resources in the world to ensure that no one, nowhere, at no time, should go hungry. — Ed Asner, contemporary actor and activist


Story: Manna in the Wilderness. This story is of the Hebrews after their Exodus from slavery in Egypt, during the forty year period when the people wandered in the desert wilderness before entering the Promised Land. The text reports that when the people became anxious because there was no food to eat, God delivered manna from heaven for them to make into bread for their daily use. We can imagine that the story was repeated and grew as generations retold the story of the wilderness journey, and how God delivered the food necessary for the Hebrew people to survive in a barren place. The story dwells on the idea that each person was provided with what food was needed to live, and nothing more.

Background info:  Exodus Background Information is extremely helpful!! To get your kids thinking about this topic, you may want to ask:

  • What do people need to survive?
  • Where does our food come from?
  • How might you feel if you were in a strange place and did not know what you were going to eat?
