Priestly vocation words


In the church bulletin the following was stated: “You give them something to eat.” Do these words challenge you to give your all for Him as a priest, deacon or in the consecrated life?


Sounds like a thought for thought bible translation of “feed my sheep”.


From Mark 6:37 NIV translation. Doesn’t have the same gravity as “feed my sheep” imo, but God speaks to people in many different ways.

That said, doesn’t really appear to challenge men to a valiant mission of great eternal consequence.
