Day 98: Ruth 1-4; Luke 11:29-54


Today the Lord drew my attention to the many benedictions (blessings) in Ruth. Take a moment and reread these passages: Ruth 1:9; 2:12, 20; 3:10; 4:11-12; 14-15. Note the power of the blessings. They all came true in much greater measure than the one blessing could ever have imagined. As a matter of fact, their blessings have impacted your life and mine after blessing countless others through the millennia. The brief genealogy at the end of Ruth 4 affirms this. This holy weekend remembered and celebrated is a direct result of God hearing the blessings and granting them. Thank God for Naomi and Ruth and Boaz! Thank God for Jesus Christ and Calvary! Thank God for the empty tomb! Thank God for the blessings, and thanks be to God for His indescribable Gift!

What if we all lived a culture of blessing? There's no telling the outcome until eternity. Let's bless each other and our world for Jesus' sake!
