Question of Character slide
Overview of week 4:
Life would be a whole lot easier if the decisions we made never affected anyone else, wouldn’t it? We could spend all of our time doing things we like to do, talking about stuff we are interested in, and only going where we want to go. But life’s not really like that, is it? This week we talked about Ruth, her relationship with Naomi, and the personal sacrifice she made that was the least popular and least beneficial thing she could have done for herself. Anyone would have told her that, but Ruth committed herself to Naomi, because she loved her and didn’t want to see her suffer. She trusted that God would provide for her. Through her faith and commitment, Ruth became the great-grandmother of David and years later an ancestor of Jesus, giving her an inheritance she never could have imagined. True greatness comes in trusting God and committing to be selfless.
“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. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”-  Ruth 1:16-17
