No Hope?

Have you felt a day in your home with no hope?

As Naomi and Ruth arrived in Bethlehem from Moab, they had little to smile about. They were both widowed, poor, and with little hope. They clinched to the law of the land that allowed people such as they were to rummage through the left overs at the edge of the fields after a harvest. It’s important to read Chapter 2 of Ruth in one sitting because it represents one day’s work for both Naomi and Ruth. They woke up early facing a long hard day collecting scraps from the field only to return at sunset with an abundance of food and new hope from a new friend.

We have each faced days like those haven’t we? Waking up with little hope then reflecting back later that night of God’s provision and favor. Sometimes great favor. Sometimes small. But always present. In reading this chapter remember that the Lord’s favor is planned; it comes through others; and provides for the future.
