Determination, commitment and steely resolve. Ruth’s oath may have be directed at her mother-in-law but it was also a covenant made to God; her choice was made and she would stick to it.
Her conviction as deep and moving as it is, is merely an echo of the depth of God’s love for us. “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38-39 NIV
Have you ever been as sure of anything as Ruth was of her love for God and Naomi?
Dear Lord, What a live You have blessed me with! I do not deserve it but I am grateful for it. May my own love and devotion towards You run as deep. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
