Feed yourself...



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.  

Babies need to be fed. Mature Christians don't depend on their pastor to feed them.  

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?
