Don’t miss out on what you have now.
In week three, we head to Exodus 16:2-21, 17:1-7 with a look at how God’s people responded while they were traveling through the wilderness. God had rescued them from slavery in Egypt, yet when they found themselves in uncomfortable situations, they complained that God didn’t care about them. They even said they wanted to return to Egypt! In spite of that, God continued to meet their needs in the wilderness and provided what they needed the whole time.
Don’t miss out on what you have now. If we’re only thinking about what we DON’T have, we might miss out on celebrating the ways God is taking care of us. It’s all too easy to look at our present circumstances and think we need something else to make us happy. God has something different in mind for us. Contentment is finding the joy in what God has provided here and now. We pray that kids will start seeing the good in their lives rather than complaining and missing out.
