As we think about Naomi and Ruth taking that 30-40 mile road from Moab to Bethlehem, what did they walk and talk about?
Ruth must have asked, "what's it like there? Will your people accept me? Any idea where we will live? What will we eat? Does my clothes look okay?"
Ruth was walking into the unknown.
Courage joined her faith for the journey.
She had no idea that one day
she would be King David's grandmother.
She was clueless that she'd be an ancestor to Jesus.
Hang tight. God blesses faith and courage.
Don't you know Ruth was and continues to be surprised?
We may not know how wide reaching our influence is until our earthly road takes us to heaven. Our deeds and actions will bring results far into the future that we'll never see down here.
