The book of Ruth shows us that taking moral shortcuts and living for short-range pleasures are not good ways to move ahead. Because of Ruth’s faithful obedience, her life and legacy were significant even though she couldn’t see all the results.
Questions for further thought:
1. How do you see your life as an instrument to give God glory?
2. How does giving God glory give you purpose as you serve Him?
Challenge: Live in faithfulness to God, knowing that the significance of your life will extend beyond your lifetime. The rewards will outweigh any sacrifice you may have made.
