Recently, I mentioned in a sermon my uneasiness when people tell me they’re not getting fed in church. To be fair, it doesn’t happen all the time. Enough, though.
My point was that I’m not there to feed the church. We’re there to feast on the word together.
I forgot to make this point:
Everyday you go to work.
Every other week or so you get a paycheck.
You’d never tell your boss that you’re not getting fed at work.
Your boss would be confused.
Your boss gave you what you needed to feed yourself.
Why would you expect your boss to do something for you that you must do for yourself?
