We, like the Israelites, can be grateful for the manna in our wilderness — for the people who day by day care, offer support and encouragement, and teach us how to live a rich, full life. We can be manna for others as well. Accepting manna and being manna for others are gifts of God to us and to each other. Partake of it and share it freely.
