Role models?

God called the prophets to do some pretty weird things because that’s what their situations called for. Their stories continue to encourage and inspire us, but they don’t necessarily provide point-by-point direction on how to live in our contemporary situations. When we focus on only a few figures with unique missions in extreme times, we miss just how much the Bible has to say to the majority of believers who are trying to live normal lives in ordinary circumstances.—Radically Normal, electronic edition

Right on! Try imitating Ezekiel...tie yourself down and cook stuff on dung! Or how about Isaiah, running around in a loin cloth for a few years. I don't think so!
