What do you do when you are faced with a tough decision?
Ruth had every good reason to take the easy way out, i.e. return home to the familiar-people she knew, customs she was accustomed to, gods she had worshiped from birth. Instead she chose the path she had not traveled before, she chose the God she didn't really know, she chose to start life afresh among strangers who dispised her kind, she chose the narrow road over the wide one. What informed her decision? Perhaps love and compassion for an old widow who had lost it all or a curiosity to try Naomi's God. She decided to stretch herself a little further and in the end gained more than she probably expected.
Ponder over these:
What informs your decision making when you're under pressure or in a tough spot?
Are you quick to take the easy way out or run to your comfort zone?
Are you willing to take a risk and gain a better life or stay where you are and perhaps wallow in mediocrity?
