I love the idea taught by Maimonides: “The greatest of all the miracles in the Torah is the journey of the Israelites in the wilderness for forty years — with a daily supply of manna”. The biggest miracle — bigger than the plagues, bigger than the Sea splitting, than the Exodus itself — is something totally ordinary: the daily, ongoing cycle of motion and sustenance.
This week, let’s embrace this insight as a personal challenge: how might we experience our ordinary comings and goings as miraculous? How is our daily cycle a gift from above? And what are the holy sources of sustenance — the manna — that are just “there” each day? Let’s slow down, live more intentionally, and see the miraculous in the ordinary.
