and Embracing Christ”
Now John wore clothing of camel’s hair with a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey.
Matthew tells us how John lived in the desert. In the process he gives us a glimpse of the sight John must have presented to the people coming to be baptised. Yet the people heard John’s message. I wonder if perhaps there are times when we spend too much time focused on how we look, and in doing so we lose sight of the message.
