A Woman of Excellence

Read: Ruth 3

We already read last week about Ruth’s character being known and recognized by Boaz. Here again we see how important that was. Boaz calls her a woman of excellence. And he’s not just saying that for himself, he says “all my people in the city know…”.

I don’t know about you, but I would love to be known as a woman of excellence. Not necessarily for what I do or accomplish but for who I am. You see the difference?

Let’s strive for that!

(On a different note, I love the cliffhanger at the end of this chapter!)

Reflect:

Are you more concerned about being recognized for what you do or for who you are?

What can you do in your life to develop as a person of excellence?

Remember: “Now my daughter, do not fear. I will do for you whatever you ask, for all my people in the city know that you are a woman of excellence.” (Ruth 3:11)

where you go I will go, your people shall be my people
