I have finished week five of the Bible study “A Woman Who Doesn’t Quit” and now I only have one week to go. I’m not sure what Bible study I’ll do next.
Today’s verse of the day is Hebrews 12:2.
She talks about how Ruth goes to the threshing floor and lies down at Boaz’s feet. In this culture, lying down at a man’s feet was an indication of a marriage proposal. Boaz understood her intent, but…there was a man who was more closely related than he.
Don’t you know Ruth was probably disappointed to hear this? I bet Boaz’s heart hung on the answer of the nearer kinsman when he went to see him the next morning. I bet he was relieved to learn the other man didn’t want to redeem it.
Nicki Koziarz, through the life of Ruth, offers these tips for us when distractions make us want to quit.
1. Step away for a day. Sometimes you just need a quick break to feel refreshed.
2. Find your forward. Everyone needs something to look forward to.
This Bible study is focused on five habits of perseverance based on the life of Ruth. The habit we’ve studied this week is “she gives others what she needs.” Sometimes you just need to do the unexpected and invest in others emotionally, even when you don’t want to or feel like it.
I hope you have a wonderful week.
