A former pastor told us about a t-shirt he liked with the words Feed Yourself printed across the front.
This pastor wasn't denying his responsibility to feed the sheep in his flock - he knew he would someday answer for how he shepherded and equipped the people God brought to his church. He meant that grown-up, maturing Christians also feed themselves.
It's an indicator of my lack of spiritual growth when I grumble that my pastor - in the church family I've chosen - does not meet all my spiritual needs.
The first thing I should ask myself when my spiritual "tummy" grumbles is am I feeding myself?
What do you think?
How you do to feed yourself?
