As I walked the sun kissed my face in the right spot. I closed my eyes and enjoyed the warm kiss on my cheek. I looked up at the clouds running across the sky.
I walked over a small bridge, as I looked over; I noticed the brown colored shrubs and bushes. Trees budding, marshland, and a pond of water that looked green as the sun glistened across the water. In the midst of all this I saw three beautiful yellow daffodils reaching to the sun for perfection.
I thought we always just glance in life for what are flawless and stunning. How different are the thoughts of our God. He takes the worst and find beauty in it. Why do we downcast ourselves? The writer of Genesis 1:26 says: And God said, let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Ruth was a Moabite (Moabites were a tribe that worshipped Balaam a false god/idol. They oppressed Israel and sacrificed their children to idols). She married the son of an Israelite. He died along with his father and brother. Naomi her mother-in-law told her to depart because now she has no obligation to her. Ruth was faithful and decided to stay and follow her back home to Bethlehem. Ruth met Boaz and they married, they had a son named Obed. Ruth was the great grandmother of King David. Also the ancestor of Joseph (husband of Mary and would be father to Jesus).Who would have thought a Moabite the great grandmother of a king and a relative to our Lord.
God can use anyone or anything for His purpose. We should learn to see the great beauty within ourselves, the strength and fire in our spirits.
