Re:Verse reading–Ruth 2:1-12, 17-23; 4:1-14 (day two)

May the Lord reward your work, and your wages be full from the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to seek refuge. vs. 12

 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men…Colossians 3:23

Can you think of a more beautiful blessing for your labors than what Boaz gave to Ruth? Word of her faithfulness to her mother-in-law had reached the ears of many. Ruth’s commitment to Naomi was not for financial reward or gain. She did not seek to “get ahead” by a political alliance. She did what was right. Her focus was not on herself. The Lord honors that. Not always financially, but in kingdom-sized investments that cannot be measured. Where is your heart? Where is your treasure? Find your reward where the Lord is waiting.

One thought on “Reward”

  1. Do what is right, not in men’s eyes but in the Lord’s eyes always. That is true wisdom. God honors us when we take a stand for what is right in His eyes. Go for the Lord, not for the crooks, not for self! Self-serving agenda should be avoided at all costs.

    God bless us so we can be a blessing to others. Be a blessing to someone as Ruth did!! We will be better off by focusing on God’s rewards! It is simple, isn’t it?
