Excerpt from Daily Heavenly Manna for the Household of Faith: A Collection of Scripture Texts With Appropriate Quotations From Zion' Watch Tower for Every Day in the Year
If Christians allow the rush and crush of selfish ambition to deprive them of their daily portion of heavenly food, they must not be surprised if they grow spiritually leaner day by day and if the peace of God gives place in their hearts to the discontent which is growing in the world, notwithstanding the multiplication of our comforts and privileges. Let us re member the exhortation, In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct thy paths. - Proverbs 3: 6.
Our first edition of Manna met with far better success than we had dared hope for; and we have been greatly encouraged by the kind words of its many friends far and near. Some call it their Heavenly Breakfast Food and tell that they feast upon its lessons as regularly as the sun rises. Surely the little tithe of time daily spent in partaking of its morsels of heavenly counsel cannot fail to profit all who partake. The day opened with such meditations is sure to be the better spent and more profitable. The heart thus turned to holy thoughts is much less likely to go aside from right paths than otherwise. The wisdom that cometh from above, is thus gradually and easily assimilable and cannot fail to bear some good fruit in the hearts of the saints, and to awaken reverence in the worldly.
Every Christian who sees this book is sure to be interested and to want a copy for his own breakfast table. And as it is published, not for profit but to do good, we have put the price so low as to bring it within the reach of all. We do our friends and neighbors a valuable service when we call the Manna to their attention and assure them that it is merely Christian - not denominational. Some use them as birthday presents and holiday gifts: others anxious to extend their good inﬂu ence, purchase them by the quantity and sell them at a slight advance to cover their time and car fare. All are welcome to engage in this service of love to the extent of their opportunity and ability.
