Who took Ruth to wife?
What was the name given to Ruth's son?
What relation was Ruth to King David?
LESSON: Ruth was always faithful and God used her in His overall pl;an. she was a relative to King David whom years later the Christ child would be born of that family. We never know what God has in store for us.
PRAYER: Lord, I want to be all that I can for You. Help me to be a witness for You. Amen.
What is our reaction when someone pulls out the old family photo album and begins to turn the pages of history, your history?: Does something happen within when you hear, "Did you really look like that"? A look in the mirror confirms those changes over the years. Are you really the person in the album or the image in the mirror? Let's be thankful that God sees us differently. When God looks at us, His eye penetrates right to our hearts and sees what no camera will ever see. He looks beyond the facial expressions and the outward actions. God sees us as we are, does He see frustrated, complaining, irritable and sinful people? Or, does He see people with hearts of love and concern, busy about our various duties but accepting them as part of the ministry that God has entrusted to our care? We are far more than what is seen in a photo or mirror. We are His workmanship, created in His likeness. but because a sinful world cannot see us as God sees us, it is of utmost important that our outward living reflect our relationship to Christ.
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child,
I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part,
but then I shall know just as I also am known.
I Corinthians 13:11-12
