WEEK–3 January 19th
THEME: Ruth Chapter 3
Kinder Box: “X”
Mystery Bag: Psalms 100:1-3
Read Ruth Chapter 3. “I will do everything you say.” This is Ruth’s reply to her mother-in-law’s directions and we can learn a lot about Ruth from her reply. The first thing we can look at is what exactly is Naomi asking Ruth to do? Naomi is telling Ruth to ask Boaz to be her Redeemer. This means that Boaz is going to marry Ruth so she can have children. If Ruth doesn’t have children then Naomi’s husband’s name dies, and the land assigned to their family is lost. This may not seem like a big deal to us, but it was a Really Big deal to the Israelites. It was such a big issue that God made a law about what to do if all the males in a family died. Remember Naomi is from Israel and understands their customs and laws, but Ruth is from Moab. Ruth’s future husband and direction for her life is the decision that is being made, and she simple replies, “I will do everything you say.” Does Ruth’s response remind you of a story we hear in the New Testament around Christmas time? Mary replied in a similar way when the Archangel Gabriel told her she would have a son and His name would be Jesus. Both these women were humble and obedient, even though they really didn’t know what they were getting into. They didn’t have to know what results would take place because they trusted God. They knew all they really needed is to be obedient to God. God would take care of the results! The events that would happen in their lives were in God’s hands. This isn’t just true for Ruth and Mary, but for us too! God has a plan for your life, and He wants to use you to do great things for His Kingdom. In order for you to fulfill God’s plan for your life, you have to have the same attitude as Ruth. You must be willing to say, “Yes, Lord, I will do everything you ask of me.” Most people decide themselves what they want to be when they grow up. Most people aren’t willing to say, “Lord you decide what you want me to be.” Are you willing to let God decide if you should be married, if you should go to college, or where you should live? As you get older, you will have many decisions to make and God has many plans for you. I pray you will seek Him and choose His plans! He promises to show you what to do if you follow Him. And to prepare you for that day, do you know what God wants you to do right now? He wants you to obey your parents. As you learn to listen to your parents and obey them without complaining or whining or crying, you are learning how to obey God! So, if you see yourself having the wrong attitude with your parents, stop and ask God to forgive you and help you have the right attitude! Then, maybe one day we will be learning about all the amazing things God did in your life!
