Ruth 2:12 The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.
Ruth has gone to Boaz for help. He is helping her greatly. She asks him why. He says that he has seen the proof of her faith. He has seen how she left the false gods. She has seen how she has come back with her mother in law.
He is asking God to bless her and reward her for all she has done. He is acknowledging her faith.
I want to be careful to see the changes made in someone’s life as they begin their life of faith. The changes may not be all that we would expect from someone but there is change.
How often have I been critical. Instead of giving a hand to those that are growing maybe I felt or thought something critical. I want to begin asking God’s blessings on those that many others would turn away from. I want to see God do a work in their lives.
Let’s be encouragers. Let’s see what God is doing and tell them. God will do more. I just need to keep my eyes open for what He is doing!
