Lazaroo – Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Aug 28, 2012 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with the wisdom of God:

“May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me.”
(Ruth 1:17)

That’s an awfully strong statement, Jesus.

It’s one thing to make such a pledge to another human being.

It’s another thing entirely
to invoke Almighty God’s severest curse on me

if I don’t keep my promise.

Ruth wasn’t going to desert her mother-in-law for anything –

even though there was no visible benefit.

As a young widow, if Ruth had wanted to improve her chances to find another husband, the smart play would have been to stay put and send her mother-in-law on her way.

Except for one thing:

This older woman knew You.
She was exceptionally wise.

Ruth knew her mother-in-law wanted only what was best for Ruth.

Ruth showed wisdom of her own
by recognizing when you find someone of that quality

you stick with them.

What is Lazaroo?
