When my kids were two, they could pretty much feed themselves. Usually they had to have the food prepared for them, but once that was done, they were set to go — they didn’t need to “be fed,” they needed to eat. And yet, many (most?) people in America who have been Christians for decades still think they need to “be fed” by someone else, doing nothing except passively sitting there like an infant. Why is that?
Eric feels that being spiritually spoon-fed once a week is actually something to boast about. Obviously young Bobby has not yet learned that Pastor Moses is the only one who can feed those who are a part of his church. The unspoken rule is that he, and he alone, has the spoon, and they must come to him every Sunday starving to receive their weekly rations of God’s word.
I wonder if Eric will ever realise he doesn’t need to be spoon-fed from his Pastor, but that the Spirit desires to let him eat from God’s grace everyday, all day.
Exactly, Mick. That’s why John wrote !”In the begining was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Amen! “Daily Bread”… That’s why we are to consume the Word of God daily!
I think it’s really benificial for us to remember that Jesus himself is our daily bread. The bible is an awesome testimony to our daily bread, but it (as a written code) is not our food itself. Just my thoughts
