"Do not urge me to leave you or to turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die, I will die, and be buried. Thus may the Lord do to me and worse if anything but death parts you and me."
When I read the Words of Ruth to Naomi I am overwhelmed with respect and admiration! Naomi had nothing to offer Ruth at this point but grief. Ruth’s commitment to Ruth was totally selfless. God honored Ruth for her love and commitment. May we be challenged to love our God and then each other as Ruth loved Naomi. It is a beautiful story of God’s redemption.
In His love.
I took these pictures at Cliffview yesterday after finishing a run with a client on the trail. How blessed we are!
