Bible Story: Exodus 16:2-21 and 17:1-7. God rescued the people from slavery in Egypt, yet when they find themselves in uncomfortable situations they complain that God doesn’t care about them and even long to return to Egypt. Yet, God still provided for their every need.
Bottom Line: Don’t miss out on what you have now. If we’re only thinking about what we don’t have, we’ll miss being able to celebrate how God is taking care of us.
Key Question: What is good in your life right now? Often we lack contentment because we’re either looking forward to something we want or looking backwards to a time when we thought life was better. To find contentment, we need to be aware of what God is doing in the present.
