Scripture: Ruth 2-4 (finishing the book)

There’s so much kindness shown in the book of Ruth. Ruth’s kindness to Naomi, Naomi’s kindness to Ruth, Boaz’s kindness to Ruth and to Naomi, and the kindness of the Lord in the orchestration of it all.

And these kindnesses have far-reaching effects. Ruth is another woman named in the lineage of Jesus (Matthew 1:5).

Kindness pays off. And even if your kindness isn’t returned, or you don’t see any note-worthy results, you can rest in the knowledge that the Lord sees and the Lord takes note.

And even if you feel beaten down, discouraged, and all alone, take refuge in the Lord and keep showing kindness. The Lord will show His kindness to you.


Journal: Thank the Lord for His kindness to you! Write out a prayer for people in your life who have shown kindness to you as well.


Move: If you didn’t run yesterday get on it today! If you did, then kick up your feet for a Sunday afternoon movie date with yourself.

{Beginner’s run #21: warm-up with a 5-minute walk, then run 9 minutes/walk 1 minute x3, then cool-down with a 5-minute walk.}


Praise the Lord, and keep showing up!
