Man does not live on bread alone

(The importance of daily bread)

Deut 8:1-20

Key Verse 3 “He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.”

Part I: The purpose of God’s discipline (1-5)

1.      Read verse 1. On what occasion did Moses speak these words? What did he urge them to do? How would this benefit them?

2.      Read verses 2-5. For forty years in the desert, what did God do? Look at Exo 16:14-36 to see how God gave the manna. Why did he feed them manna (3)? How can we live on God’s word? What does God want us to sincerely know about him (5)?

Part II: Remember him who blesses you (6-20)

3.      Read verses 6-10. Describe the land God was giving them. What kind of land does God promise to give us? How were they to respond to all the goodness God was giving them (6, 10)? How does this apply to us?

4.      Read verses 11-20. What did Moses warn them about (11-14)? How was it possible for them to “forget” God? What thoughts should they guard against (17)? How does God confirm his covenant with us (18)?
