A Daily Devotion for Monday, Jan. 30

Ruth 1:16

But Ruth replied, "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God."

The book of Ruth tells such a beautiful story. Ruth lives out the word "loyalty." She vows to stay with her husband's mother after his death, and even to follow and obey Naomi's God. Why does she do this? We can speculate, but we know God must have made himself known to her. She had lived as a married woman with a family of believers. When the family fell apart, Naomi and her God were left, and Ruth knew it was the right thing to stay with them. This is true loyalty and love.

God of mercy and love, May I show you and those I love the same loyalty Ruth lived out. Amen

Becky, transforming
