14 QUESTIONS?

15 Let me say it plainly: “feeding” is not a Bible study. Next time you hear the phrase “I’m not getting fed” or “I just love being fed” don’t ask them what sermon they just heard or what verse they just read. Ask them who they served with God, what risk they took for God, or what adventure of compassion they just returned from, with the smell of God on their clothes. This was how Jesus nourished Himself. It was his favorite meal. And if this is how Jesus eats, then how might He feed? When He asks Peter to feed his sheep, what is he talking about? Well, if eating is active then feeding is active. And if feeding is active then maybe feeding might sound less like “listen to me” and more like, “Come, follow me.” Feeding might begin to sound less like “Come and eat” and more like, “Go and give.” Feeding starts to look an awful lot like leading.

16 Imagine pockets of people all over the world who understand and celebrate the idea that God is a servant and to be like Him is to serve. Imagine groups of friends who challenge each other to live more inspiring lives, to open themselves up to the life God wants to give them and to receive the energy from God that they’ll need in order to do what they couldn’t have imagined. Imagine a world full of contributors, of healthy givers. A world overflowing with philanthropists, activists, leaders. Heroes. Imagine a community fanatical about getting fed the way Jesus defined it: not with narcissistic studies or endless sermons but in partnering with God to create as much compassion, hope and beauty in the world as divinely possible. Imagine. And while you’re imagining, don’t forget to eat
