Fretheim writes at Working Preacher, “God’s rhetoric suggests that the people have been complaining about God’s expectations of them.

What I’m Thinking: Clarity

We often complain about how difficult it is to follow God’s direction. What do we do when it’s clear? Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the sixth chapter of the prophet Micah (Micah 6:1-8).
