The Wilderness of Sin

In Exodus 16  the Hebrews wandered into the Wilderness of Sin.  My Bible teacher and preacher friends shouldn’t even need me to make this analogy.  There it is.  They literally entered the wilderness in the region of Sin. 

It could have been the Mountain of Sin, the Valley of Sin, the Municipality of Sin, but no.  The place was known to people in the region as the Wilderness of Sin.  How often do we willingly wander through the Wilderness of Sin knowing full where we are and how to avoid it?  What an illustration, and the Bible has already made it for us.
