Man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by

 every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

                         (Deuteronomy 8:3)

 

The opposite side of the coin to having a pastor who feeds the sheep is having sheep who want to be fed. This is how you can tell if you are a sheep or not: If it seems strange to you to hunger for the Word of God, you need to become a sheep. If you become a sheep, you will have a hunger for the Word of the Shepherd. A sheep has an intuitive, organic, and natural desire for the Word of God just as it is.
