Manna: the very sustenance nourishing the Israelites.  They were to collect just enough for the day ahead. Collecting excess would result in an ugly, smelly mess! Don’t I sometime, in a hurry or having too much to do, forego a gathering of “manna” (the Holy Spirit) in my morning, become that day-old manna: rotting, stinking and disgusting: to my Lord, to my husband, to my children, to my neighbors, friends, family. My spirit was designed to need replenishment every morning just as the Israelites had to gather their manna every morning. The Israelites did not lack anything as long as they admitted that they needed to go through this act every day. As I will not lack anything when I humbly approach my Lord asking for a filling of His Spirit daily.
