The manna would appear every morning on the dew for the next 40 years.  

There would not be any manna on the 7th day, the Sabbath.  

They would have to gather the manna each morning from daylight until about noon.  

When the sun got hot the manna would melt.

Each person was to gather an omer (3 quarts) per person.  

If they tried to gather enough manna for two or more days, the manna would breed worms and stink, except on the 6th day when they could gather enough for the 6th and 7th day.  

They would grind the manna in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and bake it in pans, and make cakes of it.  

The manna would taste like wafers made with honey or like fresh oil. Manna was the corn of heaven, it was angels' food.

To be able to eat manna, they would have to depend upon God every day.  

They would have to depend upon God to provide the proper weather every morning for the dew to appear with the manna.  

They would have to work (gather the manna) every day for six days.  

If they did not gather any manna, they would not eat, even though God provided the manna for them.  

Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread, not our monthly or yearly bread.  

Each day at night all the bread (manna) would be gone and they would have to trust God to provide manna the next day. It was one day at a time.

You need to depend upon God every day.  

Read your Bible every day, have faith day by day, pray every day, walk with Jesus one day at a time.

to question 10.

Note: I took the following picture, which I staged with white beads (3/16 of an inch in diameter) upon the dew in grass. This picture gives you an idea of what manna would look like.

When the manna would fall it would be very deep as in this picture.
