Bible story: Moses and the miracle of quails and manna

Creative activities based on the Bible story of Moses and the miracle of quails and manna

The Bible story of God providing quails and manna in the desert is found in Exodus chapter 16. After the Israelites left Egypt, they journeyed through the wilderness, but they soon grew hungry and complained to Moses. God responded by providing quails in the evening and manna, a type of bread, in the morning. The Israelites were instructed to gather just enough for each day, except for the day before the Sabbath, when they were to gather twice as much.

This story teaches us about God's provision and faithfulness, and how He cares for our needs. It also shows the importance of trusting in God's plan and following His instructions.
