And yet, Christ was willing to provide both Jew and Gentile with exactly thata free lunch. He fed them physically and he fed them spiritually.
Free in the sense that it was freely given and they did not merit it, yes; free in the sense that they were free to continue their old lives, unchanged, certainly no, thank God, as the true believer is to "put off the old man with his deeds", as they are "bought with a price".

(We need to fix things ourselves)
It was free in the sense that He did not require them to go home and feed themselves, but He fed them physically. He also gave them spiritual food, which they rejected then.
Believers are called to do both—to provide for the physical needs of others and to provide for their spiritual needs.
