In the book of Ruth, she loved Naomi, her mother-in-law, and stayed loyal to Naomi when tragedy struck them. That love and loyalty eventually paid off for Ruth and Naomi through a wealthy man named Boaz, who Ruth later married.
One of the takeaways about the story of Ruth is that she didn't get so weary that she gave up, she hung in there, and she stayed strong in the Lord by well-doing. Galatians 6:9 says, "And let us not grow weary while doing well, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith." Joy really does come in the morning when we stay strong and stay committed through less than ideal circumstances. We have to believe and know greater will come and things will get better. So let's keep praying, let's keep hope alive, and let's stay faithful that what we're waiting for will come. Don't give up, because God is with you.
