Even if God showers us
With ten thousand days times three
We cannot save a single one
For ourselves keep
Like manna in the wilderness
He gives one loaf each day
And asks us with our neighbor to
Share it along the way
But when we hoard it is a sin
An unbelieving seed
And traveling with that visitor
Are worry, stress and greed
Till soon that good, sweet manna
Turns to be as dry as sand
Until we joyfully accept
What God puts into our hands
Then by His daily miracle
He teaches us to trust
That even just one loaf of bread
In God’s own hand is much!
Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat'
John 6:31 ESV

Beautiful, Pete! May we use each day and each moment for Him.
Amen! Thanks Patty
Oh, that’s wonderful, Pastor Pete! That third verse about hoarding spoke to me, as the hoarding of time came to mind. / Lord, remind me that when you prompt me to give away my time to another, you are more than capable of redeeming that time.
Thanks for commenting Nancy. Yes time is the most precious thing we can give another person.
