A Little Note From Us
Today’s printable is a great ongoing family worship activity for adults and children based off the scripture at Exodus 16:31-33. The idea is to create your own personal Manna jar just the way the Israelites were told to do as a reminder of all the good things Jehovah has done for you and your family.
The house of Israel named the bread “manna.” It was white like coriander seed, and its taste was like that of flat cakes with honey.
Then Moses said: “This is what Jehovah has commanded, ‘Fill an omer measure of it as something to be kept throughout your generations, so that they may see the bread that I gave you to eat in the wilderness when I was bringing you out of the land of Egypt.’”
So Moses said to Aaron: “Take a jar and put in it an omer measure of manna and deposit it before Jehovah as something to be kept throughout your generations.” -Exodus 16:31-33
Every time you feel thankful to Jehovah for something, write down the date and a quick note describing what that particular thing was and add it to your “manna jar.” This is a great activity in thankfulness for children and a wonderful opportunity for adults to have a physical jar of good things to look back on when things feel hard.
This little kit comes with some manna bread, a basket, an instruction sheet you can slip inside of a photo frame and a label for the jar you’ll use to place your manna bread inside. This kit has two versions: one for families and one for single individuals so all can enjoy this fun activity.
