“To put it otherwise and more simply: a shepherd is no mere warder-off of wild beasts. To save the sheep from wild beasts and all other dangers is not to feed them; and if they are not fed, what matters whether they are safe or not? What is the good of being saved to starve?”
-William Still, The Work of the Pastor, Kindle Loc. 1361
How many “missions trips” have we gone on, how many “flee from evil” sermons have we listened to, how many “5 step solution” books have we read, all in an effort to save the sheep- whom we then starve?
