Based upon the Scripture: When the Israelites saw it they said to each other, “What is it”. ….Moses said, “It is the bread the Lord has given you to eat.”…No one is to keep any of it until morning. However, some of them paid no attention to Moses; they kept part of it until morning, but it was full of maggots and began to smell. Ex. 16: 15-20
The children of Israel, traveling in their wilderness’s sojourn, were graciously provided with daily manna (physical food as well as spiritual food). However, they were instructed to not store it up for the next day. Of course, some thought that they would be safer if they kept some for the next day. Maggots and stink resulted. I attempted to depict a sense of disgust and warped grace in the colors and form of this piece.
In our spiritual journey we often try to store up yesterday’s graces” for today’s battles. It is vital that we connect daily with the Jesus, the bread-giver, our bread of life.
