Exodus 16:13-15

That evening quail came and covered the camp, and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. When the dew was gone, thin flakes like frost on the ground appeared on the desert floor. When the Israelites saw it, they said to each other, “What is it?” For they did not know what it was. 

‘What is it’. What it is is manna. Manna is the bread The Lord lay upon the ground for the Hebrews to survive the forty years in the desert. It’s where we get the term, ‘manna from Heaven’ meaning getting a free gift from seemingly nowhere. Is it OK for a youngster to use the word ‘manna’ when looking at this picture? Oh, probably, but it’s more likely they’ll just scratch an ear and say ‘Huh?’. Yo, greenhorn. It’s called a television or in uncultured society, t v.

“But, Mr. The Purging Lutheran, why it big so?”

Because up until a few weeks ago all televisions were made with vacuum tubes.

“A vacuum cleaner? Whu..?”

Never mind. This is a television we used in our home. Then came thin-screened high-definition sets. Sweeeeet! That is until you watch those ‘real life’ nature shows on cable when you see in detail what the food chain is really all about. Eeew!

Ecclesiastes 1:9   What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.
