Which one of these would you be?

What if free food was all over the ground, (and it tasted delicious) and you were really hungry after wandering in the desert for forty years? How would you respond? Which one of these would you be?


                     This hungry guy?

Or this fellow stuffing his face?
Would you just sit down right where you are and go for the bread and honey?

Or would you be prompted by gratitude to wonder where all the good free food was coming from and offer thanks?

Would you be like these people?

Why spend money on what is not bread,
    and your labor on what does not satisfy?
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good,
    and you will delight in the richest of fare.
Give ear and come to me;
    listen, that you may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
    my faithful love promised to David.  Isaiah 55
