Ruth 2:2 ERV “One day Ruth, the Moabite, said to Naomi, “I think I will go to the fields. Maybe I can find someone who will be kind to me and let me gather the grain they leave in their field.” Naomi said, “Fine, daughter, go ahead.”
IN SEARCH OF KINDNESS
Not many things will come to your house looking for you; many times, you have to go out and get them. Did you notice that Jesus said we would have to seek before we find? Finding is only assured when we go seeking for whatever we intend to find. It’s lazy people who wait at home for the blessings to come; no, it’s only poverty that would visit them! Goodness and mercy follows because you are going somewhere not sitting idly!
Ruth wouldn’t wait for some miracle phone call from someone she didn’t know; she returned with Naomi broke, with nothing, and they were in dire need; Ruth didn’t start asking for addresses of their rich relations, or for phone numbers of important people, neither did she go and register for welfare or sell her body; she went to the field hoping to meet someone who would allow her work. She didn’t only get a job, she got a husband and became a descendant of Christ!
Your problem might just be how long you sleep, listen to music, chat, browse and watch television. Haven’t you heard that nothing happens until something moves? Albert Einstein so. So move! You know what you want, go for it and God will meet you on the way. Kindness is at the door waiting for you to get up, to get dressed and to move!
