St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

If Jesus is fully God, what does that say about who God is? While the claim that Jesus is fully God is a bold and controversial statement of faith, to claim that God is Jesus is even more bold and controversial, because no self-respecting God would behave like Jesus.

Grumbling.  The Lord heard their grumbling, the text tells us, and instead of rebuking them for their grumbling against Moses and Aaron, He provides abundantly: quail and manna.
 
But on the seventh day, some looked for food but there was none.  Others saved some until morning, but it was spoiled by the maggots.  The people’s lack of trust in God’s abundance caused problems in the community.  The people had a scarcity mindset which caused them to hoard food and not rest.  
 
During this time, when certain items have been on short supply, and when we’ve seen our bank accounts dwindle, we may feel scared...and wonder if God really will provide.  Times of scarcity certainly can cause fear and lead us into a scarcity mindset.
 
An abundance mindset rests in the grace of God revealed.  An abundance mindset is able to rest on the Sabbath because they know that there will be more tomorrow and there is enough for today.  An abundance mindset allows us to be content with our “daily bread” and not store up for ourselves “treasures on earth” because we know that our life is not about the accumulation of things, but the journey God has us on.  
 
In the end, the people who thrived in this time understood that God had called them to this path and thus will provide.  God is good.  Scarcity does not take away God’s goodness but accentuates it.  When we understand that God is for us, always, we move toward an abundance mindset and away from a scarcity mindset.
