I MUST FIND YOU A HOME (II)

Read Ruth 3:1-10

MEMORISE
Then she said, “Sit still, my daughter, until you know how the matter will turn out; for the man will not rest until he has concluded the matter this day” (Ruth 3:18).


EXPOSITION
This kind of relationship between Ruth and Naomi is not limited to daughters-in-law/mothers-in-law relationships. It also happens in mentor-protégé relationships. Naomi was ready to be guided, and obeyed her mentor to the letter. Indeed, she was not thinking of remarrying, but her spiritual mentor (Naomi) saw a need for her to remarry. Other qualities of this young woman are:
3. Responsibility for provision: She was not lazy. She picked up the responsibility of providing for her mother-in-law and herself. So Ruth the Moabitess said to Naomi, “Please let me go to the field, and glean heads of grain after him in whose sight I may find favour”* (Ruth 2:2).

4. Respectful: Her life was characterised by humility and respect for others. So she fell on her face, bowed down to the ground, and said to him…(Ruth 2:10a).
Ruth did not notice that some people were watching and commending her behaviours. Her news had gotten to Boaz, which latter produced great result (v. 11). Dear devout, reality must be said: many bachelors and spinsters lack good manner. We have a lot to learn from the godly dispositions of Isaac and Rebecca in the events that led to their coming together (Gen. 24:1-4). Some are in the Church, not because of relationship with Christ, but are looking for whom to marry. After marriage, you hardly see them again in Church (CACGH. Various 13).

PRAYER POINTS
1. Thank God for His desire to make your home a role model in the decaying world.
2. Pray that the Lord should find a home for the marriageable bachelors and spinsters in our churches.
3. Pray for Christian widows/widowers who are still within the range of the biblically re-marriageable ages, that God should help them make the right choices.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Isaiah. 21:7 – 24:9; Philippians 2:2 – 2:23
