I want the kind of friend who will stay at my side even when I’m hard to love.
Ruth takes my breath away at how she loved Naomi when Naomi was bitter and difficult. Ruth’s “Whither thou goest” immortalized her – not just for the beauty of the words, but because she kept her promise and because she points to a “Better Ruth,: to the One who promised never to leave us or forsake us, to be with us not just until death, but beyond.
I’d love to hear how God has kept His promises to you.
Here’s one from me. God has promised to be a Father to the fatherless. My husband claimed that promise for his children when he was dying, asking God to provide godly men for his three single daughters. In the next three years, each of our girls married pastors’ sons, giving them not only godly husbands, but godly fathers-in-law.
How has God kept His promises to you?
