Ruth 3:11

And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid.  I will do for you all you ask.  All my fellow townsmen know that you are a woman of noble character.  NIV

This verse is from the story of Ruth.  Ruth has just asked that Boaz become her kinsman redeemer, and he tells her, according to the Message, “don’t worry about a thing.”

The story of Ruth is a wonderful example of obedience.  Ruth is obedient to her mother-in-law, even though she is not completely certain of all of the whys and wherefores of what she is asked to do.  She doesn’t ask questions, she does as she is instructed, and is richly rewarded for it.

She is a loyal and loving daughter-in-law, and, ultimately finds herself in the lineage of Christ Jesus.

Such a beautiful story for a beautiful Sunday morning.
