What is it?

The next time someone points as baby zuchini, arugula, chipotle peppers or tomatillos as says, "What is it? I'm gonna tell them it is manna.

Remember in the Old Testament clear back in Exodus...

The nation of Israel numbering several million people has just walked through the Red Sea on dry ground. A few days later they are provided a light flaky food called manna. When the people first saw it they asked, "What is it?" Manna is the english translation for the phrase, "What is it?

So if you want to show off for your pastor you can use the phrase "What is it?" Just make sure you aren't referring to his sermon at the time. Or better yet bring your pastor to the farmers market and ask about one of our weird vegetables and I'll tell you it is manna.

Silliness aside. Manna was God's provision for his people for 40 years. It only stopped when they crossed into the promised land and they could take care of themselves.

Give it some thought, what kind of manna has God provided for you. I'd guess you can come up with at least 3 things that fit this description.
