Reading – Ruth 1-2

Highlight Verse:

“Boaz went over and said to Ruth, “Listen, my daughter. Stay right here with us when you gather grain; don’t go to any other fields. Stay right behind the young women working in my field.”

Ruth 2:8 NLT

On a cold October night in 1999, I first laid eyes on my firstborn daughter. In that moment, I knew there was nothing that I wouldn’t do to protect her and there was nothing she could say of do that could diminish my love for her.

Those words hold true today for her and all my children.

The first words Boaz spoke offered that same protection and support to Ruth. By calling her “daughter” he pronounced that she was as good as family.

My experience as a new father gave me new insight into the depth of God’s love for us. If this far from perfect father could offer such love and protection to my daughters, how much more can our perfect Father God offer us?

Do you understand the depth of God’s love for you?

What are you doing to bring that understanding to others?
