You are worth more than that! – Ruth 3:

You are worth more than that! – Ruth 3: 1-9
V1. My daughter, should I not try to find a home for you where you will be well provided for?NIV
My daughter shall I not seek rest or a home for you, that you may prosper? Amplified.
My dear daughter, isn’t it about time I arranged a good home for you so you can have a happy life? Message
At this time it was normal practice that parents arranged their children’s marriage and so Naomi was just fulfilling her duty. She is trying to tell Ruth – Now is the time Ruth for changes around here. Your purpose in life is not to stay single with a poor widow to look after. You are worth more than this!
There comes a time with everyone of God’s people when hope is awakened by the precious name of Jesus, His kindness and His redemption and we begin to hear the Spirit’s prompting – You are worth more than that! You have not been put on this earth to go under, to be overwhelmed and eaten away at the predicament you have found yourself to be in. You were created for something much better.
Not that you should be free of problems and the many difficulties of this life, for your time on earth can have many challenges. But you are worth more than what those challenges can cause in you. You are worth more than just accepting that your life consists of isolation, rejection, defeat, disillusionment, anxiety, frustration, lack of self-worth, loss of identity, and the list goes on. You are worth more than these things. We all need to begin to believe that God has a purpose for our life and its not to wallow in self-pity no matter how hard our life is.
One day Naomi said to Ruth it’s time! Everyone needs someone to jolt them out of mundane Christianity and up a level. To be able to say there is so much wasted potential here, you are worth more than this.
