Ruth was the best example of a daughter-in-law. Back then, she would have lived with her mother-in-law. Ruth took care of Naomi.
I try to be a good daughter-in-law, but the best I can do is to check up on her. (Her “fur-babies” make my allergies go nuts.) She’s probably ready for me to stop “mothering” her.
“Did you sleep last night?”
“When was the last time you ate?”
If the way you treat your mother-in-law is the way your daughter-in-law is going to treat you, then I must be doing something right!
Ruth 2:11, “Yes, I know,” Boaz replied. “But I also know about everything you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband. . . .” New Living Translation
When Mahlon died, Ruth’s dream of children died. But God gave her children in spite of her circumstances. When all hope is lost, is when God does his best work.
“But death is just a hook behind the door. Where I’ll leave my dirty clothes.” Perfector by My Epic
