Lessons from Ruth

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Ruth 1-4

No matter what I'm reading in my Bible (a real life account like Ruth, Old Testament laws, genealogies, instructions on living for Christ, etc.), my approach is to ask myself, "What can I learn from this particular verse, passage, chapter or book? What is it that God wants me to see and grasp from what I've read today?"

I'm a firm believer that every word contained in the Bible is important for us to take in and process. Even if we don't feel like we understand it well or fully, if we're obedient to reading His Word, God will reveal to us truth and lessons for living.

So before moving on to another book, let's take today to look back at the book of Ruth and think about what truth and lessons God revealed to each of us. The big lesson for me was actually a reminder that I need over and over again—that God is bigger than my circumstances, that His plan (which includes His timing) is best for my life and that I must trust fully in Him, regardless of how I might feel at the moment.

What's one truth or lesson that God impressed on your heart from the book of Ruth? What encouraged you the most from the account of Naomi, Ruth and/or Boaz? What did this story reveal to you about God? Tami

What's one truth or lesson that God impressed on your heart from the book of Ruth?
Ruth was a truly loyal servant and so faithful to Naomi. She always honored and obeyed what Naomi told her to do. Boaz saw her a a true blue to Naomi and as a worker in his field.
She is a wonderful spiritual illustration of what a true servant of Christ would be like in the every day life.

What encouraged you the most from the account of Naomi, Ruth and/or Boaz?

Naomi, who came to Bethlehem bitter to helping Ruth to find a protector,redeemer, provider and possible a husband since there was no off-
spring to further the family lineage.

What did this story reveal to you about God?

God's plan are definitely not our way of thinking,but we see faithfulness, hard working Ruth and Boaz were used by God a Moabite widow young to be married to a wealthy older man who was Jewish. Oh yes, Ruth did believe in the God of Israel and that is one of the reason she cleaved to Naomi.
God does not make mistakes even in our sorrows, disappointments, discouragements we KNOW God KNOWS best if we obey His will. God is so patient and understands and knows how to use us to glorify Him.

To glorify God and His plan for us should be why we do our best although we may never see the rewards of it on earth. God's plan are eternal.
