When looking for somebody of Faith to write about, I came to think about my cousin Ruth. Ruth has had amazing transformation in her life. From the bondage of religion to true freedom in Our Lord and Our Friend,
So it is appropriate to write about Ruth from The Bible.The Ruth in The bible was a Moabite woman whose husband Mahlon died. Mahlon was the son of Naomi and Ephrathites from Bethlehem who were living in Moab because of the famine in Judah. After the death of her own husband Elimelech, and her two sons, Naomi returned to Bethlehem with her daughter-in-law Ruth.
They returned during the barley harvest, and Ruth found favor with the owner of the field Boaz. . Ruth later married Boaz and Ruth is mentioned in the genealogy of Christ Jesus, the mother of Obed and the great grandmother of David.
Ruth move to follow her mother-in-law back to Bethlehem, can be seen as in her strengths:
A willingness to forsake her home and family to follow God
A strong relationship with her mother-in-law.
A place in the genealogy of Jesus.
Ruth displayed great loyalty.
When we look for lessons from Ruth life, we can establish that God’s living presence in a relationship overcomes differences that might otherwise create difficulties and disharmony.
Read the full story about Ruth, by a book in the Old Testament of the same name Ruth is also mentioned in Mathew 1 verse 5.
Loyalty one of the greatest characteristics we all can have, can be summoned up in a verse to remember from Ruth. Ruth 1 verse 16:
“But Ruth replied;’Do not persuade me to leave you or go back and not follow you. For where you go, I will go, and wherever you live, I will live; Your people will be my people, and your God will be My God’.”
Loyalty to Our Lord and Our Friend, where ever you take Lord I will go.
