NT: Philippians Ch. 1
Gospel: Matthew Ch. 20 v. 1-16
Even though God was already providing for the Israelites as they were journeying out of Egypt, the people nonetheless complained, remembering their enslavement as an idyllic time when they sat by fleshpots eating their fill of bread. So, having provided for their needs, God now provides for the ungrateful people’s wants, sending them manna in the morning and quails in the evening. God gives freely to sustain life in a foretaste of the Eucharist. ‘In Exodus, through food and water, the people are transformed, as they grow from adolescence to adulthood – into being God’s people, obedient to him.’ – Chris Haslam
- Pray that we will be committed to sharing God’s generosity throughout the world.
- Give thanks for all those who generously care for others, especially remembering Anglicare and all other church caring agencies throughout Australia.
