Scripture

Ruth 4:11-13

11 Then the elders and all the people at the gate said, “We are witnesses. May the Lord make the woman who is coming into your home like Rachel and Leah,who together built up the family of Israel. May you have standing in Ephrathahand be famous in Bethlehem. 12 Through the offspring the Lord gives you by this young woman, may your family be like that of Perez, whom Tamar bore to Judah.”

Observation

The people around Ruth were very welcoming of this foreign lady into their community. Even though she was not of  the correct race being a Mobite she was converted in her belief of GOD and accepted as part of his linage.

 

Application

GOD has a place for everyone in his Kingdom.  He recognizes everyone and their contribution in building up the family of Israel.

Prayer

Dear GOD,

Let me understand more about the ways that you work and how you bring others into your community.

AMEN.
