Our western consumer mentality has created an expectation and co-dependency in institutional church to provide for our every spiritual need. This has supplanted the all sufficiency of Christ and placed expectations on the church that she can’t meet. When these expectations are not met, people get offended or dissatisfied. We must become self-feeders for spiritual growth. There is a season of dependency in discipleship, but many people get used to this provision and never learn to feed themselves.
As a pastor, it is always sad to see people leave churches that have loved, provided and nurtured them. On the lighter side I wanted to share a little “FEED ME” humor.
