The Israelites were hungry and wanted to have a pot-luck
They had been wandering in the desert for oh so long
They wanted fresh fish from the sea ( was that too much to ask?)
Melons, leeks and cucumbers sounded so good
They wanted all the onions and garlic a body could eat
They started to grumble in the hearing of The Lord
They didn’t like the food their God was providing for them
They were tired of their misfortunes
And the food God called manna
The manna made from coriander seeds
To spice- up their desert food
Their God was taking care of them
The manna fell from heaven….
And tasted like a little honey a wafer cake
But the people were tired of this excellent food from God
So, the Israelites wailed and cried
They grumbled about God’s chosen food for them
They said they were becoming weak from the very lack of meat
Then one day…. God had enough
“Here is I what I will do” He said
I am going to give you all meat you can eat
I’ll give you a pot-luck to remember
Sorry, you don’t like my kind of food
So, God sent a mighty wind and
Brought many quail to their camp
While the meat was yet in their mouth
Between their teeth
Before they could swallow it whole
God’s anger came to a boiling point
And He struck them down with a very great plague
Now, here is the question of the day….
WHY did God do this thing?
Because they didn’t like God’s pot-luck in the sand
Because they were not thankful and complained out loud to Him
So, here is a little advice, something I highly recommend
The next time you are tempted to complain about the church potluck
Take a deep breath….. Say a little prayer
THANK YOU Lord for this food, I promise never to complain again
I am so happy to attend…… I even love the quail meat….
The cakes are tasty too
Thank You God for………
THIS POTLUCK FROM HIS HAND!
