Scripture is full of all sorts of characters. The ones who are totally unlike us remind us that sometimes our faith needs to pushed out a little further, that we need to be a little more extreme, a little more holy and other. The ones like us remind us that God can use us too. So where is the balance? How do we challenging our faith by the example of the guys wearing camel’s hair suits and eating locusts and wild honey yet still remain true to our own talents and abilities and who God made us to be?
