More than a few times, and as recent as yesterday, people ask me where I get fed. By that they mean, where do I attend church. The question is loaded with assumptions and I usually find myself being evasive because it takes a while to explain. But yesterday, I looked at the person asking and said, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.”
Then I questioned myself, “Is that arrogant thinking?” “Who am I to use Jesus’ own words describing His work that The Father sent Him to do and apply it to myself?” Some might tell me that I need to check that attitude at the door, and preferably, the door of a church.
Was I wrong to respond in that way? Is it prideful? Is it presumptuous?
