Today’s Reading – The book of Ruth
One day Ruth, the Moabite foreigner, said to Naomi, “I’m going to work; I’m going out to glean among the sheaves, following after some harvester who will treat me kindly.” Naomi said, “Go ahead, dear daughter.” And so she set out. She went and started gleaning in a field, following in the wake of the harvesters. Eventually she ended up in the part of the field owned by Boaz
Ruth seems to have chosen Boaz’s field by chance.
However, God seems to find away for good things to happen to those people who trust Him.
“If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all” the saying goes, but this is certainly not the case for Ruth.
It is also not the case for us as followers of Christ.
God has a plan for you.
Sometimes we need the patience to discover the plan.
Sometimes we need to do a little “gleaning” to discover God’s plan.
