Today’s Words of Faith come from the Book of Ruth.
A little about the book of Ruth ?
Ruth is a story of love, devotion, and redemption set in the days of the Judges. Basically, it is the story of a Moabite woman who forsakes her pagan heritage in order to cling to the people of Israel. Boaz brings a Moabite woman into the family line of David and eventually of Christ.
Ruth 1 : 16
But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.
