TO ALL OF THE SINGLE & TAKEN GUYS AND GALS…
I encourage you to read the book of Ruth; a story that conveys what true love looks and acts like.
Hollywood has distorted the meaning of love as a feeling of affection, but true love goes so much deeper than mere feelings. Feelings constantly change and I honestly do not want a love that is based on something that constantly changes, do you?
Nowhere in the story of Ruth does the bible say that Boaz and Ruth were physically attracted to one another, but Boaz “noticed” Ruth because of her strength as a woman, her labor of love for her mother-in-law Naomi, and her intense work ethic, but most of all, she was woman of virtue.
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14
BOAZ IS THE STANDARD FOR YOU MEN
It takes a strong God-fearing man to stand firm in the situation Boaz was in. Guys, this is the standard for you. You should be the moral leader who protects the purity and reputation of the women you associate yourself with. This is what real manhood is about. Your Ruth will come.
RUTH IS THE STANDARD FOR YOU WOMEN
Likewise, ladies please don’t compromise yourself or God’s standards to get attention from a guy. Let the attention you receive from any man, be attention that stems from your inner beauty, character and virtue. Your Boaz will come.
This story has helped me in the past to understand what kind of love I should be looking for and showing…virtue, inspiration, and patience.
We live in a time where ungodliness is everywhere, but we need to be that light, a light that leaves no room for darkness.
Please take the time and read through this beautiful love story and I “hope” that you are encouraged!
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
