02 Aug Ruth- Caring For Others Like God Does
Caring Like God Does
The story of Ruth is a great example of caring for others. Ruth shows her love for Naomi by caring for her. Boaz shows his love for Ruth by committing to care for both her and Naomi. Because they loved God, they wanted to take care of each other. Just like the people we meet in the story of Ruth, we can also show God’s love by taking care of other people.
Memory Verse: “The Lord takes good care of all those who fall. He lifts up all those who feel helpless.” Psalm 145:14 (NIrV)
August 7th- Ruth and Naomi
