Edwards, Feeding the Flock

This week in one of our church’s Wednesday night classes we covered J. I. Packer’s chapter on Jonathan Edwards in his book, A Quest for Godliness. It is a great chapter, but one line especially stood out to me concerning pastoral ministry. It was this description of Edwards from Packer:

“All his life he fed his soul on the Bible, and all his life he fed his flock on the Bible” (310).

May this be said of us in the end. If we just feed the flock other things will flow from that.
