“And the children of Israel ate manna forty years, until they came to an inhabited land; they ate manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan.”
In 1999, David Whipple bought a burger at a McDonald’s in Logan, Utah, to use in a demonstration. He put it in his coat pocket and then forgot it was there. When his wife found it in the coat in 2013, he decided to store it in a tin from that point on.
Recently a reporter persuaded Whipple to take a look at the burger. Other than the pickle, which had disappeared, they concluded that it looked “relatively the same” after all those years.
When God provided food for the Israelites in the wilderness, they couldn’t even keep it overnight. Otherwise, it would rot (except the extra they collected for the Sabbath). They called this food “Manna,” and they were to gather as much as they needed for the day.
