"Why?" is the favorite question of most children. As a child of God what is the biggest "Why?" you have for God as you look out at the world and go through your experience of life?
Naomi gave Ruth every reason to leave and head back home to her family. Instead, Ruth clings to her mother in law and makes a lifelong commitment to her path, her people, and her God. Name a time when you made a decision for a person and away from logic. What made you do it?
We often lift up the question "Why?" as the pinnacle of human achievement. "Why?" invites us to explore, learn, unearth, and grow. But in Ruth, we learn there is an even more powerful reality: Who. When we have a significant person in our lives (our "Who"), we will often do anything for them, even if the "Why" makes no sense.
God sees us as his delightful children, and it is because of who we are (as his children) that God constantly comes toward us in love and grace. Who in your life is God driving you toward with love and grace? As you pursue them, what might you find?
