today’s Bible study

Today’s old-testament reading was from Exodus.

Moses and the Israelites have been wandering in the desert for 38.5 years.

They’re complaining, just a little.

(Big surprise, eh?)

They’re basically tired of wandering, perpetually lost, hungry, and thirsty, and bored with the limited menu: namely manna, quail, and water from a rock. Perhaps a little variety would be nice: maybe some salmon? a nice green salad? would a little fruit — some strawberries, or perhaps a handful of grapes, be too much to ask? all washed down with a nice, under-oaked Chardonnay?

ANYway, God hears enough of their incessant whining, and sends poisonous snakes among them. (Let THAT be a lesson to you.)

I can honestly say, in all these years of having children complaining about what they are being fed for dinner, I never thought of this.

    That is the ugliest snake I’ve ever seen. Do you know what kind it is?

    I thought of it… but they ate the snake.
    Actually, I did once eat snake soup in Taipei. It tastes like chicken. Very bony chicken.

    Perhaps you should let them play with the snakes!
