There were three widows in the family: Naomi, Ruth and Orpah.
Naomi, the mother-in-law (the mother in love) blessed Ruth and Orpah, showing genuine thankfulness for them (the daughters in love) and trust in the Lord. ”May the Lord show you kindness, she said, as you have shown kindness to your dead husbands and to me. May the Lord grant that each of you will find rest in the home of another husband.” You can bless someone today, just as Naomi did. You can be a mother in love, or a daughter in love. Choose to bless others.
Is your perspective distorted because you have judged God or your life by your losses? Through tragedy and trials, God grows us in ways that easy times rarely do. Do not let bitter things threaten your life or your joy. In the season of sorrow, keep moving, one foot at a time, go toward God’s promised land.
Lord, please bless all the widows and help them find rest and peace in Your presence.
