Minister as Feeder

Put the grass within reach of the sheep, and he will eat it himself. So it is with truth. Hold it up so that people can plainly see it; bring it within comfortable reach of them; give them time to get at it, and they will eat it. Charles Lamb used to say that ‘the truth of a poem ought to slide into the mind of the reader while the reader is imagining no such thing.’ The truth of a sermon ought to glide into the mind of the hearer without the hearer really knowing what is going on.
