Make the Right Choice to be with the people of God :

Disaster struck a family that had moved to another country to earn their living. The mother lost her husband and was left to take care of her two sons in this new land. The mother worked, raised her two sons, married them to local girls and enabled them to start their own families. Happiness didn‟t last, the two young men died leaving behind their young wives. The lives of three women in that family got turned upside down for the worse. Left without her husband and her two sons the mother decided to return to her home country. At this juncture she called both her daughters-in-law and told them to go back to their families and begin a life of their own. She kissed them, blessed them and bid them farewell. The elder daughter-in-law kissed her mother-in-law, took her wishes and blessings and left to start a new life. The younger daughter-in-law on the other hand declined her mother-in-law‟s advice and made a choice of her own. Her choice was an exceptional one. "Don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God”. She was so determined that her mother-in-law stopped urging her. The daughter-in-law‟s name was Ruth and the mother-in-law‟s name was Naomi. Ruth 1: 19 says “So the two women went on until they came to Bethlehem”. In this land of Bethlehem the life of Ruth changed dramatically. God blessed her with a man called Boaz as her husband. Boaz was a man of character, a man of standing in the society and a man who was rich and prosperous. Ruth and Boaz became a happily married couple and the blessed great grandparents of King David. All these turn of events happened because of the choice that Ruth made to be with the people of God. My dear friend may be you have lost the most precious thing in your life or may be your hope and future has been brutally crushed beyond restoration , may be you are struggling to know the direction in which you need to proceed…., cheer up the choice of Ruth must be role model to you. Ruth understood that her mother-in-law Naomi belonged to the small group of people who were in a covenant relationship with the great and awesome God the Creator of heaven and earth. Her decision to be with this chosen people of God brought the blessings of God upon her and on to her generation. No one would have ever imagined that Ruth„s life would change from being a widow to a blessed mother in the genealogy of Jesus Christ (Mathew1:5,6) . In the same way no one in your family would have ever dreamt of the new blessed life that God has in store for you. Make the right choice to be with the people of God, God will turn around the things in your life and bless you.
