Hard times in Alberta call for a financial refocus back to the Bible. Some Bible passages I find difficult to understand. For example, when God led the children of Israel out of Egypt, it soon became apparent that the desert vegetation and wildlife could not sustain them. God supplied manna, the sweet cookie-like food, six days a week. Obviously, this was miraculous. We find the full account in Exodus 16. There was enough for over two million people. The manna that came on the sixth day lasted for two days, while all other days’ manna spoiled in one day. Personal effort was required to collect this miracle food; it did not just crystallize in their baskets.
