The story of Ruth reminds me a lot of the kind of loyalty and obedience that God wants to foster in each of us – especially in regards to our relationships with our parents.
In this life, we have many choices. One of the most important choices we have to make is whether or not to remain faithful to those who have been faithful and steadfast to us. I have chosen to be faithful. No one has been more faithful to me than Jesus. I remain a Christian because of what Christ did for me on the cross and the Hope of His everlasting life that He has given me.
