In today’s reading from the book of Exodus, we see the Israelites grumbling to Moses about the lack of food in the desert. When God rains down bread from heaven for them to eat, Moses teaches them about God’s life-giving generosity. Moses is telling us that God’s generosity knows no bounds and He will satisfy our every need. But the nourishment God sends is much more than food to satisfy our immediate hunger. God satisfies our hunger for eternal life. Through Him we find love that leads to true and lasting satisfaction. As Jesus promises, “whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.” We only need to trust and believe.
