We are called to bring God’s love and compassion to others.
Ruth clung to Naiomi. So Naiomi said, “See, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law.” But Ruth said, “Do not press me to leave you or to turn back from following you!
Where you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people,
and your God my God. Where you die, I will die— there will I be buried.
May the LORD do thus and so to me, and more as well, if even death parts me from you!”
Ruth 1: 14B – 17
