Proper 26/Ordinary 31 2015 – Ruth 1:16

Thursday, October 29, 2015 

Ruth 1:16 – But Ruth said to Naomi, “Do not press me to leave you or to turn back from following you! Where you go, I will go; Where you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God.”

Naomi had urged Ruth to return to her own mother, but Ruth would not consider it.  While we may not appreciate unprecedented depth of commitment Ruth is showing to Naomi, we are challenged today to consider our own loyalties, our own priorities, in our lives.

Steadfast God, you promise to never leave us.  Help us to remain steadfast to you in return.  Amen.
