🎧 My Favorite BibleBreakdown Episode This Week>>>
My favorite episode this week: Ruth 4.
📚 Faithfulness Creates Legacy. 💪
(Ruth 4:22) “Obed was the father of Jesse. Jesse was the father of David.”
Observation: Ruth is such a great example of what faithfulness can do. Ruth resigned to a hard life when she decided to help her mother-in-law, Naomi. There was no social media. She wasn’t doing it for clicks, views, and likes. She had no idea what it would lead to. She was trying to do what she thought was right. Look what God did. We tend to overestimate what we can do in the short term and wildly underestimate what God can do through a lifetime of faithfulness. Being faithful will likely never make you a celebrity or an influencer. However, it might do something even better. It might help you create a legacy that lasts for generations.
Application: Be faithful and trust the Lord to do what He can.
Prayer: Help me to never look down on the place and season you have me in. Thank You for choosing me to do, be, and walk in this life.
