DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR JANUARY 3, 2019
1/3/2019 Ruth 2:11-12 Boaz replied, “I’ve been told all about what you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband — how you left your father and mother and your homeland and came to live with a people you did not know before. May Yahweh repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by Yahweh, the Elohim of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge.”
Doing good to others is always recorded and will always ultimately be rewarded by Yahweh. Boaz was in another land when Ruth made the extra effort to protect, comfort and care for her mother, Naomi. Yet, Yahweh revealed Ruth’s good will to Boaz, who in turn encouraged her with the promise that a blessing from Yahweh was hers. Do not be afraid to do good for others. Do not be afraid to extend yourself. Yahweh will bless you for your good will, just as He blessed Ruth.
