Awakening hope – Ruth 2: 19-23
Through his kindness
v20. He has not stopped showing kindness…
Kindness comes from the word hesed.
It is the sense of loyal love, commitment and totally faithful no matter what. It has no claim on it so that you cannot earn this kindness.
Kindness came on Naomi’s loss. She had lost her husband and two sons, her credibility, her identity and her future.
Kindness came on Naomi’s suffering. There was deep pain in her heart.
Kindness came on Naomi’s guilt. She had moved away from the ‘House of bread’ it turned out to be the wrong decision.
Everyone of us will experience grief, and there will be times of personal grief when a special loved one dies.
Is there pain in your heart? Are you experiencing unfair treatment? There are always breaks in the cloud when kindness falls from heaven like soft rain, washing away sadness and discouragement.
Kindness is falling today.
