3 Things Women of Today Can Learn From Ruth


3 Things Women of Today Can Learn From Ruth

Marriage was far from Ruth’s mind because she had not too long lost her husband.

She was broken and wanted to hold on to the only sense of normality she had which was her mother-in-law, Naomi.

Ruth was a Moabite, which means she did not believe in the God of our salvation.

However, Naomi must have made an impact on her life so much that she stated in Ruth 1:16  Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God.

She was devoted to her mother-in-law, Naomi because in essence she was the only family she had.

This story has so many powerful messages, but we will focus on three main points that stood out to me and I pray will help you in your season of preparation.

Here 3 things that Boaz found intriguing about Ruth…

Ruth took her advice and got showered, put on some nice clothing and some perfume and went to him (NOT ON HIS INVITE lol) and laid at his feet. Fast forwarding… Read more »

I love this…thought I’d share.

“When you know your worth, you will not just accept anything that comes your way, but you will wait on God’s best for you.”

While waiting praying that God will reveal to you how to be a wife after God’s heart.

Wow that’s powerful! Received this! Thank you sis for sharing.
