|One day Naomi her mother-in-law said to her, "My daughter, should I not try to find a home for you, where you will be well provided for?" |
|Then Naomi her mother in law said unto her, My daughter, shall I not seek rest for thee, that it may be well with thee? |
The story of Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest stories in ancient literature. In this part, Ruth's mother in law is coaching Ruth in how to prepare for meeting her potential (and eventually, future) husband, Boaz. Similarly, there are times when we need to get prepared for opportunities that haven't happened yet. Many times the preparation becomes an act of faith toward the faithfulness of God.
