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
Don’t be so busy fighting off the world that you forget to feed the sheep actual food.
