Numbers 22:39-23:26; Proverbs 20:1-21:11; James 4:13-5:20

Entreat me not to leave you…Your people shall be my people, And your God my God. Ruth 1:16, NKJV

They all lived happily ever after. So read the fairytales. Sadly life is seldom that way. The story of Ruth is a sad, depressing story for she was dealt a severe blow. Shortly after her marriage her husband died leaving her a young widow. Some of you may be experiencing the same thing: a broken home or the loss of a partner. God eventually intervened in Ruth’s life and He will intervene in yours—in His time and in His unique way. Hard as it may be, trust Him and rest in Him. —Jim Comte

No one understands like Jesus:
He’s a friend beyond compare.
Meet Him at the throne of mercy:
He is waiting for you there. —John W. Peterson
