How awesome is our God that He surrounds us with love from unexpected places and people. Naomi was going back to her country with a daughter in law who was the direct enemy of her people. Yet God’s love showed between them and the nation of Israel no lines of division. Today let us learn to embrace one another’s difference, and let us learn to love as God desires.
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
““Look,” Naomi said to her, “your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods. You should do the same.” But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. Wherever you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD punish me severely if I allow anything but death to separate us!” When Naomi saw that Ruth was determined to go with her, she said nothing more.”
Ruth 1:15-18 NLT
