24 September 2023 – Sunday 25A (COCU 57A)

(Exodus 16:2-15)
Free, but low on food,
the community felt trapped
and they blamed Moses.

Then God intervened
providing manna and meat
for their daily needs.

Now, some wanted more,
but their gathered excess spoiled:
they learned the hard way.

Yet still we suffer*
rampant greed outstripping need:
is sharing so hard?
    Jeff Shrowder, 2023
* suffer: (1) permit, (2) be harmed
