The thought for the day..
A gentile Moabite woman Ruth lying at the feet of a Israelite Boaz and he tells her in Ruth 2:10 "May you be blessed of the LORD, my daughter. You have shown your last kindness to be better than the first by not going after young men, whether poor or rich.
11“Now, my daughter, do not fear. I will do for you whatever you ask, for all my people in the city know that you are a woman of excellence."
Today’s world must have called her all names; and would have ex-communicated him. But 1 Corinthians 13: 4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
I thank God that I have found a great Boaz who has received me and redeemed me in spite of my race, color and character. That’s why I love HIM and worship HIM all the time. I am greatly and humbly obliged to HIM whose Name is JESUS CHRIST, MY SAVIOR AND MY REDEEMER.
