Bible Reading: Ruth. 1:1-18
Text: Ruth. 1:16
And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God.
To be loyal is to be faithful and committed to whoever is watching over your precious life.
Perhaps we should begin by asking, when should we be loyal? Where should our loyalty end?
Looking critically at the issue of Ruth and Naomi, Naomi does not have what to give to any of her daughters-in-law again to compensate for the lost of their husbands who happened to be her sons, yet Ruth determined never to live outside the presence of her miserable mother-in-law.
She stood her ground and never yielded to the pity of her mother-in-law for her to go back to her nativity to start a new life as she suggested.
Truly, the future of both Naomi and Ruth was bleak as far as any human can forecast.
However, loyalty, which is one of several principles of reward in life, helped Ruth and propelled her destiny to the peak of manifestation. Because she held tightly to the scepter of loyalty, her destiny took a unimaginable turn.
She is a rare example on this subject matter. Your loyalty and commitment to certain people is vital to the manifestation of your destiny.
Pretense is not loyalty, rather it opens you up to wrath and demotion. Some people are very perfect in deceiving themselves without knowing that there is nothing hidden about them, they are known for their deceptive practices.
Being real has the power to save you from destruction.
Let Us Pray.
1. Thank you oh Lord for your transformation upon my life.
2. Oh Lord God, destroy every seed of disloyalty in my life in Jesus name.
3. Thank you for answered prayers.
