Series: Ruth’s Loyalty
Discussing/sharing about topics like these increases our faith, expectations, desires and standards to go to the next level.
The story of Ruth talks about how she served her mother-in-law inspite of not understanding the outcome of her relation.
Many times as people, we constantly try to gain/receive something from a relationship.
However, Ruth was 100% loyal in her relationship.
The book of Ruth talks two men who died in a famine.
Being in Bethlehem they did not die in the famine, whereas moving to a prosperous land they died.
There were two women named:
i) Orpah which means Mane (deer/gazelle).
ii) Ruth which means Friend.
The first woman Orpah was considered beautiful, whereas Ruth was an ordinary person.
We constantly look for things to develop on the outside.
Though Ruth was ordinary, she made history!
It doesn’t matter how we look, what we do, where we go; those are not the standards by which God would measure us as a person.
Are you a person who is a friend, somebody who is available?
Ruth was a friend to her husband, children, mother-in-law, community and Boaz.
Ruth won the favour of God because of her heart of a friend!
If you willing to be a friend to the people God has placed around you, you are setting yourself up for God’s favour!
